RCMP Respond to Criticism.

The RCMP says its officers did nothing wrong, in the case of Nicole Ryan Doucet.

As you'll remember, the Supreme Court of Canada stayed charges against her last month, for trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband.

In doing so, the court criticized the RCMP for setting up a sting to catch her, rather than taking steps to end her husband's abusive "reign of terror."

Assistant Commissioner Alphonse MacNeil is the commanding officer for the RCMP in Nova Scotia.

He says his investigation shows that officers did the right thing when dealing with Nicole Ryan.

He wasn't available to speak to us. But the CBC's Jerry West taped this interview with him yesterday.
