Suprenderjit Singh Reyat, the only man convicted in the Air India bombing, has been sentenced to nine years in jail for perjury at the trial of his accused co-conspirators.
B.C. Supreme Court Justice Mark McEwan gave Reyat credit for 17 months in pretrial custody, meaning he will spend seven years, seven months more in jail.
In September, a B.C. Supreme Court jury found Reyat guilty of perjury in connection with his September 2003 testimony at the Air India trial.
In May 1991, Reyat was sentenced to 10 years in prison for manslaughter in relation to the bombing in June 1985 that claimed the lives of two baggage handlers at Tokyo’s Narita Airport.
In February 2003 he pleaded guilty to manslaughter in connection with the explosion aboard Air India Flight 182 over Ireland that killed 329 people.
Reyat admitted that he acquired various materials for the purpose of aiding others in the making of explosive devices, but claimed that he did not make or arm any explosive devices and did not place any bombs on an airplane.
In an affidavit he said he did not know who made the bomb that blew up Air India Flight 182.
But B.C. Supreme Court Justice Ian Josephson, who acquitted Ripudamann Singh Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri of murder in connection with the Air India bombings, found that Reyat as a witness was an “unmitigated liar.”
Reyat was sentenced to five years in prison for manslaughter.
