Inquiry into death of Native man reopened to hear more testimony
An inquiry into the death of a Native man who was left in an alley by police officers has been reopened.

Frank Paul, who was Mi'kmaq from New Brunswick, died in December 1998. Police officers dragged him out of a lockup in British Columbia and left him in an alley on a cold night even though he was severely intoxicated and wet.

The inquiry closed in March 2009 but retired judge William Davies will hear from three former prosecutors who never pressed charges against the officers who were involved. Testimony is expected next week.
