Ministry of Attorney General branch communication counsel Geoffrey Gaul confirmed his office will be releasing a media statement on the Doug Walls affair, possibly within the next 30 minutes. Special prosecutor Josiah Wood has been reviewing an RCMP recommendation to press criminal charges against Mr. Walls, who was forced to resign earlier this year as the head of multimillion dollar government agency. Those charges relate to serious allegations of fraud made against the former Prince George car dealer by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.
