SASKATOON – A man once accused of bizarre child sexual abuse resumed questioning his accuser on Thursday in a civil malicious prosecution case that is seeking $10 million in damages. Brian Dueck led a child sex abuse investigation in 1990 which brought more than 70 charges against several people. Most of those charges were eventually dropped, but the accused are saying that his investigation was part of malicious attempt to prosecute them.
Richard Klassen, one of the former accused, says he’s waited years to finally have his questions answered, but he says Brian Dueck’s testimony has raised even more questions.
“Mr. Dueck has glossed over a lot of the a year and a half investigation which almost cost us a number of years in jail…our children to be taken away,” says Dueck.
Klassen says he wants to find out exactly what happened in Dueck’s investigation. Despite years of digging Klassen says he is still finding out things he never knew before.
“One name was brought up specifically by asking the questions was Rod Moore,” says Dueck. “I had no idea that Rod Moore had done some of the training for Mr. Dueck in relation to his interviews. And we all know who Rod Moore is.”
Rod Moore became a key investigator in another sweeping child sex abuse case known as Martensville. As in this case, Martensville also ended in numerous failed prosecutions.
