A Manitoba RCMP officer has been charged with perjury following testimony last fall in an Arborg courtroom.

The Independent Investigation Unit was notified on September 24, 2019 about a complaint made the day before about an officer’s testimony in provincial court proceedings.

The IIU investigated and found there were reasonable grounds to believe a criminal offence occurred.

Const. Paul Lacoursiere was arrested and released to appear in Arborg court on August 10, 2020.

No further details of the original court case were released.
