(Vancouver Province) – An RCMP officer has been charged with perjury after court testimony in 2009 and is scheduled to appear in court April 13.
Cpl. Michael Nelson, who is currently posted to the Upper Fraser Valley detachment, is alleged to have perjured himself testifying in a 2007 case concerning the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Nelson, who has 22 years service with the RCMP, has been suspended from duty with pay since March 2009.
“A separate RCMP internal Code of Conduct investigation was also initiated and Cpl. Nelson will have to appear at a formal disciplinary hearing before an adjudication board,” said Annie Linteau, RCMP media relations officer.
