Ethnic Community Responds To Quick Release In Abdi Case


What was the Special Investigations Unit thinking when it gave a quick release without a court appearance to Const. Daniel Montsion charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of Abdirahman Abdi?

In this racially charged situation, it needed to be shown that everyone is treated the same and that a police officer doesn’t catch a special break. The release of Const. Montsion by the SIU was legal but was bad public relations.

People expected a response from Ottawa’s multi-racial community and guess what? They got it.

“We are deeply troubled by this inconsistency in the application of justice and are even more concerned by the impact this has on the level of trust between the community and law enforcement,” Hamid Ibrahim, co-chair, Justice for Abdirahman Coalition said.

Everyone involved in the sensitive case needs to be careful that not only justice be done, but that it appears to be done.

  1. As I said in an earlier post, something stinks about this case. In fact almost everything stinks. Finally in a rush to meet perceived PC needs the SIU disregards the officer.
