RCMP Concludes That No Charges Will Be Laid Against the Canadian Human Rights Commission

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 27, 2008) - An RCMP investigation into a complaint against three employees of the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) has been concluded, and resulted in no charges being laid.

Commission employees had been accused of improper investigative techniques while investigating cases of hate on the Internet.

"The employees of the Canadian Human Rights Commission abide by the highest standards of professionalism and ethics in all aspects of their work," said CHRC Chief Commissioner Jennifer Lynch, Q.C. "The CHRC is pleased to have this matter resolved."

The RCMP criminal investigation was launched following an allegation made by the respondent in a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal proceeding held in March 2008.
