37 cases of alleged police abuse in Val-d'Or handed over to Crown


Quebec's director of criminal prosecutions (DPCP) will announce Friday whether the Crown will pursue charges related to dozens of complaints of alleged abuse involving Indigenous women at the hands of Quebec provincial police officers in Val-d'Or.

Montreal police, which handled the investigation, turned over 37 files to prosecutors for review, the department said in a statement Monday.

The DPCP said it will inform complainants of its decision prior to holding a news conference Friday in Val-d'Or but declined to comment further.
