BCCLA to respond to public statements of Frank Paul Commission of Inquiry

Posted on

The BC Civil Liberties Association will be available today, Wednesday, June 22, to respond to the public statements of William H. Davies, Q.C., Commissioner of the Frank Paul Inquiry. The BCCLA anticipates that the second report in the Frank Paul inquiry, which was delivered to the provincial government in May 2011, will be made publicly available today.

The Commissioner will make his public statements at 1:00 PM on Wednesday, June 22 at the Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Boardroom 320, 580 West Hastings Street (at Seymour).

The Frank Paul Inquiry is the independent commission of inquiry that examined the circumstances surrounding the 1998 death of Frank Paul. The second report deals with the response of the Criminal Justice Branch to Mr. Paul’s death. Crown prosecutors made five charge-approval assessments in the Frank Paul matter and decided that no charges should be laid against the police officers that were involved in Frank Paul’s death.

The BCCLA was a participant in the inquiry. The BCCLA was represented at the second phase of the Paul Inquiry by Michael Tammen of Harper Grey LLP, and Grace Pastine and Carmen Cheung of the BCCLA.
