“All citizens, including myself as the member for Papineau, we want to have clear answers on what happened (…), answers based on facts,” said Mr. Trudeau who opened his conference of press of the day on this dossier.
Falsely accused of attempted murder of a police officer, Mamadi Fari Camara was released after spending six days in prison.
The authorities then admitted they had mistaken the person and released him from all charges.
Meanwhile, the real culprit has taken off.
The Prime Minister warned that he would personally monitor the situation “to find out why it happened”.
Knowing that Mr Camara is a black man of African origin, Mr Trudeau did not hesitate to point out that “systemic racism exists in all our institutions”.
