Didier Buzizi v. Her Majesty the Queen (March 27, 2013)
Case # 34899

At issue is the use of self defence. The appellant decided to intervene in an altercation between his cousin and the victim. The appellant stabbed the victim several times, and the victim died. At the trial, the Appellant argued that he had no choice but to defend himself by stabbing the victim several times. The Appellant was found guilty of second degree murder. On appeal, the appellant argued that the trial judge had erred in refusing to instruct the jury on the provocation defence. In a majority decision, the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal from the guilty verdict.
