B.C. man accused of human trafficking in Saskatchewan is back in jail

A Victoria man charged with human trafficking is back in a Saskatchewan jail one week after he was granted bail.

Shawn Alexander Kelly, 23, from Victoria, is one of four people arrested at the end of January when Swift Current police stopped a trio of suspicious vehicles for speeding — when they pulled the group over, police discovered two unidentified women they believed were being exploited.

On Feb. 5, Kelly was released on no-cash bail.

Kelly was placed on numerous conditions which included keeping the peace, abiding by a curfew, and living in an approved residence in North Battleford, Sask.

Police say he was arrested for allegedly breaking a condition that prohibited him from having any weapons.

On Feb. 14, Kelly appeared in Swift Current provincial court on the new charge. He was remanded back into custody.

Three other Vancouver Island residents face human trafficking-related charges in Saskatchewan as well.

A co-accused, Shermineh Sheri Ziaee, 36, also of Victoria, was released on Feb. 5 along with Kelly, on a $1,000 bond. Ziaee has since returned to Vancouver Island.

The other two accused include Ziaee’s 19-year-old sons, Seyed Kourosh Miralinaghi and Seyed Kamran Miralinaghi, of Nanaimo, B.C., who were both denied bail and remain in custody.
