No charges against Quebec provincial police in Val-d'Or abuse scandal


Crown prosecutors will not charge six Quebec provincial police officers following an investigation into the alleged abuse of Indigenous women in Val-d'Or, Que., sources have told CBC's French-language service Radio-Canada.

Prosecutors have been in the city 600 kilometres northwest of Montreal since Monday, meeting with the women who made complaints about police conduct.

"They deserve that we take the time to meet with them to explain what led to our decision," Crown spokesperson Jean-Pascal Boucher told CBC News.
