What happened to Errol Greene? Autopsy results reveal new info on inmate death
Errol Greene was cuffed, shackled and restrained on his stomach during epileptic seizure
As a former political Prisoner in the Guantanamo’s Canadian prisons, my personal experience over the months of my captivity is as follows: The violence and danger to be assassinated by the prison guards is a way of every single day survival. The truth is that: the prisoners are being abused, tortured, and killed by those guards of the prisons across the country. The prisoners they are not in a position to denounce anyone, not to the judges in the courtrooms for fear of being beaten or killed. Remind that Erroll Greene it is not the first prisoner of being killed by the guards, also many names exist in the prisons lists. As Ashley Smith who was exposed for years to the murderous, abusive, sadistic torture, and behaviors of the prison guards. The Ministry of Correctional Services, during years has demonstrated such a terrible abuse of power.

Eyewitness accounts of the death of Errol Greene are now confirmed by an autopsy report.
CBC News obtained a copy of the detailed report, dated Oct. 13, last week. It points to concerns around how the 26-year-old's epileptic seizure was handled by corrections officers, and proves he was not administered his seizure-controlling medication while in custody at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
Greene's wife, Rochelle Pranteau, is still sifting through the pages of medical jargon trying to make sense of it all.
"I can't imagine what he went through, and I don't know what to tell our kids," said Pranteau, who just gave birth to her and Errol's fourth child, Errol Junior.
Concern over the circumstances of Greene's death emerged early on from those who witnessed the medical emergency in person and over the phone. They questioned the emergency response to Greene's seizure and the possibility that the Winnipeg Remand Centre denied access to valproic acid, the seizure-controlling medication for which Greene was prescribed.
Pranteau was speaking with Greene over the phone when he suffered the first of two seizures that eventually led to his death. At the time, Greene told Pranteau that he repeatedly asked for his medication but was ignored.Death investigated after Winnipeg Remand Centre denies epilepsy drugs to inmate
