The 54-year-old appeared via a video link but wasn’t able to tell the judge if he understood the charges laid against him.
Mabiour kept demanding the judge listen to him and said he wants a doctor.
The matter was set over to Sept. 9 when Mabiour makes his next court appearance.
Mabiour’s next court appearance will be September 9th at 9:30 AM. When the judge asked Mabiour if he understood the charges he said “no I don’t”. He kept saying “I don’t remember. Because I’m sick.”

On Tuesday, RCMP said this was not a random attack and the two men knew each other through the clinic.
