An Alberta legislature member investigated by the RCMP after he admitted to hacking into a government health website says he will not face criminal charges.
Thomas Dang says in a statement he will instead have to pay a yet-to-be-determined fine for contravening the Health Information Act.
Dang resigned from the NDP caucus when he became aware of the RCMP probe in December 2021.
He has been sitting in the house as an Independent but says he wants to return to caucus.
NDP Leader Rachel Notley, when asked in Calgary, said she was not aware of the development but would get more information and discuss it with the caucus and party.
She had said Dang, who represents the constituency of Edmonton-South, would not be allowed to sit in caucus or run for the party in the next election while under police investigation.
