ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Newfoundland and Labrador's Justice Department says an independent watchdog agency from Nova Scotia is investigating a complaint related to the handling of an investigation by the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.
The department says the Serious Incident Response Team was asked to investigate in November.
In a statement, Justice Minister Andrew Parsons says he's unable to comment on the specifics of the allegations while the investigation is underway.
Parsons says once the results of the investigation are public he will comment in more detail.
He says public confidence in the justice system is paramount to the government.
