Charges against cop could affect weapons case against Nicholas Chan

Perjury allegations against a senior Calgary police officer could impact the weapons-related trial of gang leader and murder suspect Nicholas Chan.

Chan’s retrial on five charges relating to the March 3, 2010, discovery of a loaded .32 calibre handgun under the driver’s seat of his car, has been delayed until March so defence lawyer Michael Bates can review information on charges against Sgt. Les Kaminski.
Nick Chan was leader of one of Calgary's most notorious and deadly gangs — FOB. Chan's paranoia kept him safe from the gang's fierce rivals, the FK — a splinter group that formed because of personal rifts between members of the FOB. Chan's eventual downfall were the informants ... other top-ranking founding members of the FOB. Most have been killed, are in custody, or have made plea deals.

In March Chan was found not guilty of first-degree murder for the death of Sanjeev Mann at the Bolsa Restaurant on New Year's Day 2009.
FOB enforcer Hans Eastgaard, in an interview with police, detailed how Chan ordered the death of Kevin Anaya in August 2008. Chan planned the attack, choose the gang member who would commit it and gave him a gun. Anaya was shot and killed while walking to a friend's house for a barbecue in Marlborough, one of 25 killed in the FOB-FK gang war.
