A civil law “nuclear bomb” to freeze organizers’ assets

Monique Jilesen is quoted in a La Presse article to discuss Lencnzer Slaght's success in securing a Mareva order freezing the bitcoin and cryptocurrency of Freedom Convoy leaders to help benefit Ottawa class members.


“Cryptocurrency holders must go through these exchanges to convert their currenciesinto cash.
These sites are regulated, and we expect them to obey the order if they don't want to be held in contempt of court," said lawyer Monique Jilesen, of theToronto law firm Lenczner Slaght, who pleaded the cause on behalf of the citizens and merchants who launched the class action.
