Taser use ruled out in New Cale­do­nia death probe

Fiji Sun - - Pacific News - Noumea: RNZI

The pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor in New Cale­do­nia says the use of a taser has been ruled out as a fac­tor in last week’s death of a man in po­lice cus­tody.

An au­topsy was or­dered after the 38-year-old man died at a med­i­cal cen­tre in Ou­vea where he was taken after he had lost con­scious­ness. Po­lice used a taser to sub­due and de­tain the man after he had as­saulted an of­fi­cer.
