Final report into death of Robert Dziekanski to be released Add to ...

The final report into the death of Robert Dziekanski will be made public within two weeks.

Retired B.C. judge Thomas Braidwood has led a two-part inquiry into the death of the Polish immigrant after Mr. Dziekanski was jolted by an RCMP Taser at Vancouver airport in 2007.

B.C. Attorney-General Mike de Jong says cabinet has completed its review of the inquiry report, though he can't say much more until it's released.

Mr. De Jong says after the report is made public, he will address the issue of appointing a special prosecutor to examine possible charges against the four Mounties involved in the incident.

The first-phase of the inquiry dealt with the use of stun guns by police in B.C., and the second report focuses on the events that led to Mr. Dziekanski's death.

The RCMP formally apologized to Mr. Dziekanski's mother for his death in April and contributed $20,000 to a scholarship in his name.
