Alvin Wright’s father asks for time before commenting on RCMP review

Posted on

The father of Langley RCMP shooting victim Alvin Wright is asking media for some time to review the decision of the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner (“PCC”) not to recommend charges against the officer who shot his son.

Alan Wright, the father of Alvin Wright, has been provided some documentation of the police investigation for the purposes of the Coroner’s Inquest into the shooting, which will start, officially, on Monday, March 26, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at the Burnaby Coroner’s Court, Metrotower II – 20th Floor, 2035-4720 Kingsway.

He is, however, under an order from the Coroner not to speak about or release any of the materials provided to him, even if the investigation materials may contradict or undermine information provided and relied on in the OPCC review process. He is currently taking legal advice on how he may properly respond to this review.
