HALIFAX - Nova Scotia Justice Minister Ross Landry is releasing two reports today into the case of Ernest Fenwick MacIntosh.

Landry received the final reports last month from the Public Prosecution Service and the RCMP, but needed time to review them before making them public.

The review by the Public Prosecution Service was ordered after the Supreme Court of Canada upheld a lower court's decision to quash 17 sexual convictions against MacIntosh dating back to the 1970s, saying the Crown took too long to bring the accused sex offender to trial.

The Public Prosecution Service has said the internal review would explore how extradition cases are handled, while Landry has said it would also deal with the role of the federal government.

The report is scheduled to be made public at a news conference in Halifax.
