The Prince Albert Police Service (PAPS) officer charged in relation to the in custody death of Saul Laliberte is having his matters adjourned.

Tyson Morash was not present in Prince Albert Provincial Court Wednesday afternoon when his matter was spoken to. His lawyer, who appeared by phone on his behalf asked for the court to adjourn the case until Dec.13. The crown prosecutor, who was also appearing by phone did not object to the request, which the court quickly granted.

In asking for the adjournment, Morash’s lawyer explained there is a large amount of disclosure which has been provided to the defense from the investigation which they still need to review.

Morash is charged with failing to provide the necessities of life in relation to Laliberte’s death which happened in Nov. of 2021.

The case has attracted much attention from First Nations leaders including the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) and Prince Albert Grand Council (PAGC), with both publicly showing their support for Laiberte’s family.
