SIU Ends Investigation into Mississauga Incident Involving Injury to Man in Police Custody
The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has concluded its investigation into an incident that took place in Mississauga earlier this year, in which a 33-year-old man sustained an injury while in police custody.
According to the SIU, on April 2, the man became enraged when his father withdrew as his bail surety. A surety, as defined by Legal Aid Ontario, is an individual who appears in court and agrees to supervise an accused person while they are out on bail. The surety also assumes the responsibility of paying the court if the accused violates their bail conditions or fails to attend court hearings.
