Mother of Robert Dziekanski believes apology 'truly meant' Add to ...

The mother of Robert Dziekanski says she believes RCMP Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass "truly meant" an apology offered to her following the death of her son.

In a statement released late yesterday, Sofia Cisowski says she still believes and appreciates the apology.

Internal RCMP emails show Deputy Comm. Bass wrote the force was "not apologizing for the actions of specific members or saying anything about specific actions."

The Prime Minister's Office said it's "disappointed" by the memos, with a spokeswoman saying the apology was very important to Mr. Dziekanski's family and his mother.

Mr. Dziekanski died in October 2007 after he was stunned several times with a Taser following a confrontation with Mounties at Vancouver's airport.
