"Nicous D'Andre Spring should have been released on December 23, 2022 following his video appearance" and was therefore in illegal detention, acknowledged a spokesperson for the MSP, Marie-Josée Montminy, in a statement sent to the QMI Agency.

Two other detainees should also have been released on December 23, but had to wait until the 24th to regain their freedom, added the spokesperson.

The ministry did not disclose the reasons why Nicous D'Andre Spring and the other two detainees remained illegally behind bars last Friday. This new element will be taken into account in the various ongoing investigations, in particular that carried out by the Department of Internal Audit, Investigations and Inspection (DAIEI) of the MSP.

"The recommendations made by the DAIEI following its investigation will be carefully analyzed by the MSP and corrective measures may be taken, if necessary," said Ms. Montminy.

Nicous D'Andre Spring was injured during an intervention by correctional officers on December 24. He succumbed to his injuries in hospital on Christmas Day.

The victim was notably charged with assault on a peace officer, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and criminal harassment.

The Sûreté du Québec and the coroner's office have since opened investigations into this event.

A correctional officer has also been suspended by the MSP, while other staff members could be subject to administrative measures.
