Black man's wrongful arrest in Montreal sparks calls for independent inquiry
CA, 07 Feb 2021
Montreal, Que. Mayor Valerie Plante is calling for an independent investigation into the arrest of a Black man, Mamadi Fara Camara, who was cleared of wrongdoing in the attempted murder of a police officer.
Camara was arrested Jan. 28, after a police officer was allegedly disarmed and attacked following a traffic stop. He spent almost a week in detention when prosecutors on Feb. 3 dropped all charges after they said evidence had surfaced absolving him.
Amanda Jelowicki reports on the calls for the inquiry amid allegations of racial profiling.
