A provincial court judge in Surrey has agreed to unseal search warrant information obtained by the RCMP in an investigation linked to a Mountie accused of professional misconduct.
Judge Peder Gulbransen's decision gives the public access to the warrant executed in August at the New Westminster home of Grant Wakefield, a man accused of defamation against Coquitlam Corporal Jim Brown.
The judge has ruled the crown and RCMP didn't have sufficient grounds to suppress details which have yet to be disclosed.
But he has agreed to protect the names of some people linked to the case including Brown's wife and children.
Brown was accused of inappropriately using RCMP resources but there's no proof he commited any crimes.
