“On June 10, Edmonton Mayor Amarjeet Sohi released a statement concerning Justin Bone, the individual charged in the killings of Hung Trang and Ban Phuck Hoang.
“The statement incorrectly claimed that Justin Bone was released from remand without a plan for housing and that addictions treatment services were unavailable.
“Justice and Solicitor General can confirm that Justin Bone was released from the Edmonton Remand Centre on April 29 to an Alberta Beach homeowner as per his release conditions, as determined by the courts. Justice and Solicitor General can also confirm that an alternative addiction treatment facility without a wait-list was made available.
“The Alberta RCMP and the Edmonton Police Service are both undertaking reviews of this matter. I have instructed the Deputy Minister of Justice and Solicitor General to monitor these reviews and recommend next steps once finalized.”
