More than two years after the incident, RCMP notified the Independent Investigations Unit (IIU) concerning an allegation of excessive use of force by two RCMP members.

On Aug. 11, 2021, RCMP informed the IIU that on Aug. 1, 2019, an allegation was made of excessive use of force by two RCMP members during an arrest of a male suspect at the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport.

After the investigation, which began on Aug. 11, 2021, the IIU’s civilian director believes there are reasonable grounds that a criminal offence occurred and has authorized a charge of assault under section 266 of the Criminal Code against one of the officers involved.

As a result, the officer has been issued a summons for Sept. 26 in Winnipeg Provincial Court for assault contrary to section 266 of the Criminal Code.

As is their policy, the IIU won’t disclose any more information on a matter that is before the courts.
