Toronto mayor Rob Ford 'ordered jail beating'


The mayor of Toronto Rob Ford is being sued for allegedly conspiring to have his sister’s former boyfriend beaten up in jail.

Scott MacIntyre, who is claiming more than one million dollars in damages, maintains he was attacked in March 2012 on orders from the mayor who wanted to stop the inmate from revealing his drug and alcohol abuse, which at the time were not public knowledge.

Ford’s lawyer Dennis Morris has called the claims “irresponsible”.
