Officer who fatally shot Ejaz Choudry refuses to speak with investigators, police watchdog says

The police officer who fatally shot Ejaz Choudry, a 62-year-old man suffering from a mental health crisis, has refused to speak with Ontario's police watchdog about his actions last month.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) says the Peel Regional Police officer, whose name has not been released, declined to be interviewed and has also chosen not to submit a copy of his notes.

Under the Police Services Act, officers under investigation, referred to as "subject officers," cannot be legally compelled to speak with the SIU, the agency said in a news release Thursday afternoon.

The Choudry family's lawyer said it's "troubling but not surprising" that the officer won't speak with the SIU.
