The lawyer allegedly involved in a surveillance campaign that targeted a Manitoba judge has been charged with intimidating a justice system participant and obstruction of justice.

The suspect, 55-year-old John Carpay, was picked up in Calgary after a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest, Winnipeg police said.

In a statement posted to its website Sunday the Justice Centre called the charges against Carpay “unexpected and without explanation.”.
