Ex-Cop who Snubbed Cornwall Sex-Abuse Inquiry Appeals Contempt Conviction

Perry Dunlop a former police officer who is currently serving a jail sentence for refusing to testify at the Cornwall Sexual Abuse inquiry he helped spark is appealing his contempt conviction, but still has no plans to give evidence at the sex-abuse probe.

The Canadian Press has reported that Dunlop has retained Ottawa lawyer Lawrence Greenspon to handle the appeal, which he initially filed himself as an inmate.

I have posted about Dunlop’s refusal to cooperate with the inquiry before.

I can sympathize with Dunlop’s frustration over the failure of the criminal investigations that he initiated. I can even admire his principled stance.

But I do think that the inquiry would be better served, and victims of abuse would be better served, by hearing from Dunlop.

What do you think?
