It's day two of the five day trial of 39 year old father of six, Syrian refugee Soleiman Hajj Soleiman.
Hajj Soleiman is standing trial on six counts of sexual interference and another six counts of sexual assault against six minor victims — all girls under the age of 16.
The charges stem from a series of separate incidents all on the same evening at at the World Waterpark wave pool at West Edmonton Mall.
Supporters of the accused have dwindled down from ten down to two today. Media interest is waning also, with just one mainstream media reporter in the courtroom.
The 15-year-old witness continued her testimony from behind a screen, coming out just once to identify the accused as the man who had groped her two times while she was in the wave pool.
During cross examination, the defence tried to cast doubt on the reliability of the identification of the accused by the witness, implying that his contact with her was accidental.
Another young girl, one of the six victims, takes the stand this afternoon. She was 13 at the time of the alleged offences against her.
