The public will learn Friday morning whether there will be any consequences for the four RCMP officers involved in the death of Robert Dziekanski when former judge Thomas Braidwood releases his final report on the incident.

No one is more anxious about Braidwood's findings than Dziekanski's mother, Zofia Cisowski.

"She still considers the four police officers responsible for this," Cisowski's lawyer Walter Kosteckyj said.

"She thinks other people failed as well -- that includes the airport and border services -- but she is hoping the outcome will be criminal charges against the four RCMP officers."

Dziekanski, who didn't speak English, was unable to find his mother after arriving at Vancouver International Airport from Poland in 2007.

He remained in a secure customs area for about 10 hours and RCMP were called when he became agitated.

Seconds after officers arrived, Dziekanski was jolted five times with a Taser.

The entire incident was videotaped by a bystander, and without it Kosteckyj says it likely would have been swept under the carpet.

The video was widely viewed, and Dziekanski's death has rattled public confidence in the RCMP.

Kosteckyj says one of the ways that trust could be rebuilt is to make sure the RCMP stop investigating themselves.

"That has to change. It has to be done by a real independent body, not people associated with the RCMP or police bodies in general," he said.

Criminology Professor Robert Gordon from Simon Fraser University isn't convinced the RCMP is committed to making any real changes.

"You'll see a lot of movement around the fringes, but movement should not be confused with action," he said.

"I don't think there's a willingness from the top down to do anything that's fundamentally different, other than continue to ride a series of storms that will continue to afflict this particular organization."

The RCMP apologized to Dziekanski's mother in April for the force's role in her son's death.

An email from Deputy Commissioner Gary Bass to Brian Roach, a staff relations official in the force, has since been released by Mounties in response to an Access to Information request.

"Even though the word ‘apology' worries some, we are not apologizing for the actions of specific members or saying anything about specific actions," Bass wrote on March 31, the day before he made the apology.

The Office of Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a response to Bass's email Wednesday afternoon, expressing disappointment.
