Case Number: 09-OCI-104
Other News Releases Related to Case 09-OCI-104
In April 2010, the SIU reopened the investigation after learning there were additional witnesses who wanted to provide information. These witnesses were interviewed, as was another witness who had provided a statement to the SIU during the original investigation but now claimed he had further information to provide.
Upon his review of the additional information, Director Scott concluded, "I continue to remain of the view that no probable cause exists to believe the subject officers committed a criminal offence in relation to the arrest of Mr. Gregory."
The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must
- consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
- depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
- report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
