Liberals call for suspension of police officers involved in Dagobert operation

The Quebec City Police Department must suspend police officers involved in a controversial weekend operation, the Liberals are asking.

The parliamentary leader André Fortin affirmed that the SPVQ must take this measure until an investigation sheds light on the intervention of its agents, which made the headlines during the weekend.

“We ask for the suspension of these police officers until the investigation is carried out and that we have all the information on what happened in this intervention”, he said at a press briefing at the Assembly. national.

On Monday, the Minister of Public Security, Geneviève Guilbault, asked the police ethics commissioner to investigate the operation that took place early Saturday morning on the Grande Allée.

Opposition parties expressed dissatisfaction with the request on Tuesday. The representatives of the Liberal Party, the Parti Québécois and Quebec solidaire have all demanded that the Independent Investigations Bureau (BEI) be mandated.

The law allows the Minister of Public Security to order an investigation by the BEI in exceptional situations, declared the solidarity member Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois.

“We are in a situation where it is very shocking, it generates a huge public debate,” he said. The institution that we set up in Quebec to resolve these issues in the wake of the debates we had several years ago is the BEI. “
