Montreal Police Seek To Block Inquiry

From Canwest News Service:

Two Montreal police officers involved in the death of Mohamed Anas-Bennis in December 2005 are seeking to block a public inquiry into his shooting. A petition filed in Quebec Superior Court yesterday said the inquiry, ordered by Quebec chief coroner Louise Nolet, was "useless" coming two year's after a coroner's report, and therefore illegal. Const. Yannick Bernier shot Mr. Bennis, who was returning home from a mosque, after they bumped into each other and Mr. Bennis allegedly attacked him with a kitchen knife.
