OTTAWA - The RCMP says it has completed a comprehensive file review of murdered and missing aboriginal women and girls within Mountie jurisdiction — more than 400 in all — and will continue to pursue outstanding cases.

Newly disclosed briefing notes say the national police force has reviewed 327 homicide files and 90 missing-persons cases involving aboriginal females.

In addition, the Native Women's Association of Canada says it is prepared to share its list of aboriginal women who may have met with a violent fate or simply disappeared — but only names gleaned from public sources such as newspapers and posters.

The association says it will not provide the Mounties with private details that may have come from family members and friends of the missing.

The effort would build on an earlier transfer of names to the RCMP involving cases where there was little information to go on.

That prompted the RCMP to ask the native women's association for all 582 names in its database.
