A special prosecutor has stayed a peace bond application against former Nanaimo CAO Tracy Samra after he concluded the application was no longer required in the public interest.

In court Wednesday morning, Special Prosecutor Michael Klein advised that shortly after the original incident, Samra was released on conditions of no contact with named complainants, conditions identical to the conditions the Crown would have sought in the course of the application for a peace bond.

Klein also said Samra has been subject to the conditions for more than a year, a period of time greater than permitted, and there have been no further incidents and no suggestion of breach of the no-contact orders.

The decision was provided to the complainants in advance of the court appearance Wednesday.

Samra was arrested in early 2018 for allegedly uttering threats at or near Nanaimo City Hall on Jan. 31. She was on paid leave following her arrest but in May 2018, the City of Nanaimo announced she was no longer employed by the municipality.
