Uko Inquest

Released on June 19, 2020

The Saskatchewan Coroners Service has made the decision to hold an inquest into the death of Samwel Uko.

Uko, 20, was declared deceased after being recovered from Wascana Lake in Regina on May 21.

Section 19 of The Coroners Act, 1999 states that the Chief Coroner may direct that an inquest be held into the death of any person.  The Saskatchewan Coroners Service is responsible for the investigation of all sudden, unexpected deaths.  The purpose of an inquest is to establish who died, when and where that person died and the medical cause and manner of death.

The coroner’s jury may make recommendations to prevent similar deaths.  The date and location of the inquest will be determined at a later date, taking into account the precautions in place to limit the spread of Covid-19 and the need to schedule previously postponed inquests.
