HARBOUR GRACE, N.L. — The case of an RCMP officer charged with perjury and obstruction of justice has been put over to June 4 in Harbour Grace, N.L.

Const. Shawn Greene was charged Feb. 10 after Halifax police conducted an independent investigation into a complaint made last May.

The RCMP have said the investigation focused on Greene’s work while he was stationed in Harbour Grace, but have not disclosed details of the alleged offences.

Greene, 34, did not appear in court Wednesday.

He was transferred to Nova Scotia’s Richmond County in February 2012 and was suspended with pay after the charges were laid.

The RCMP also launched an internal investigation.

RCMP spokeswoman Helen Cleary-Escott has said that no convictions or other proceedings are affected by the charges.

Organizations: RCMP

    They don't live here and are just stationed here until they go somewhere else. They have no connection and have littl to no citizen support. We need the RNC in Newfoundland - just that simple. No more expensive than what we pay now for inferior performance and service.

    And a transfer is all this guy is going to get, move him to a different location and all is forgotten. It's just the way the system works.
