One of the officers acquitted in the Robert Dziekanski perjury case in 2013 is now taking both the Attorney General and B.C.’s justice minister to court.
In a notice of civil claim, Cst. Bill Bentley says in the years following the Polish immigrant’s tasering death, he has sought medical attention to deal with the psychological impact.
He alleges that since the 2007 ordeal there have been misinformation about him spread through the force and in the media.
Bentley’s counsel goes on to say since September of last year, he has been unable to return to active duty and is seeking damages, including past and future income.
This after a similar suit was filed by Cst. Gerry Rundel in early March.
None of these claims have been proven in court.
