From Ad IDEM / CMLA

Jump to: navigation, search

Note

In this decision, the Quebec Superior Court ruled that the in camera nature of a pre-enquete under ss. 507.1 of the Criminal Code (private criminal complaint) does not carry over automatically to the application for judicial review (certiorari) of the decision dismissing the private complaint. The certiorari hearing is in principle public and the Dagenais/Mentuck test applies.

Decision Summary

The judge hearing the certiorari lifted the sealing order on the pre-enquête file, on the transcripts of that earlier hearing, and on the decision dismissing the complaint.
