Perjury case against Mounties in Dziekanski case put over until Sept. 28 Add to ...

Legal proceedings against four Mounties charged with perjury over their testimony to the Braidwood inquiry have been put over to Sept. 28.

The scheduling decision was made Wednesday morning during a brief hearing in B.C. Supreme Court.

None of the officers attended. They were, instead, represented by legal counsel.

Special Prosecutor Richard Peck told the hearing that disclosure in the case would be done by Sept. 28, and that he had had preliminary meetings with three of four lawyers. The case is proceeding by Direct Indictment.

The Braidwood inquiry was called by the B.C. government in 2008 to look into circumstances around the death of Robert Dziekanski.

On Oct. 14, 2007, Mr. Dziekanski died following a confrontation with the accused officers at Vancouver International Airport after he arrived from his native Poland as part of a plan to start a new life in Canada.

The officers were charged in May over their 2009 testimony to the inquiry.

Accused are Corporal Benjamin Robinson, and constables Bill Bentley, Gerry Rundel and Kwesi Millington.
