TORONTO – Two high-ranking Toronto Police officers will go before a tribunal on April 9 to face allegations arising from the G20 summit.
Insp. Gary Meissner and Supt. Mark Fenton face misconduct charges which were laid under the Police Act.
When the matter came up before the tribunal on Monday, prosecutor Patricia Latimer provided the defence with “primary disclosure” of evidence. Neither of the officers were present at the proceeding.
During the June 2010 G20 summit, police allegedly did little to stop vandals and hooligans from taking over the streets.
On the second day of the summit, police started rounding up demonstrators and held them for hours.
The Office of the Independent Police Review Director said in a report that the round-ups were unreasonable and unlawful.
The incidents allegedly took place at Queen’s Park, the University of Toronto and at Queen St. and Spadina Ave.
