Non-Native offender will receive an aboriginal parole hearing

A non-Native offender will receive an aboriginal parole hearing in Canada on Wednesday, a decision that has angered the father of the victim.

Gregory Bromby, who was born in Haiti, will receive assistance and guidance from a Native elder. He is seeking to be transferred to a halfway house in connection with a 1994 murder.

“He hasn’t showed that he is ready to be released,” Michael Manning, the father of the victim, Tara Manning, told The Montreal Gazette

Tara Manning was 15 when she was brutally raped and stabbed at her family's home in Quebec. Bromby, who was a minor at the time, eventually admitted the crime.

The Parole Board of Canada says anyone who demonstrates a commitment to Native programs and spiritual activities can request an aboriginal parole hearing.
