Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – November 19, 2007 (Part 2 of 2)


Commission of Inquiry into the Investigation of the Bombing of Air India Flight 182

Witnesses: Steven Chabot, William Blair, Raf Souccar

Steven Chabot (Quebec Provincial Police) makes a statement expressing the condolences of Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police to the families of the victims of the bombing of Air India flight 182. Mr. Chabot then proceeds to testify as a member of a panel along with William Blair (Toronto Police Service) and Raf Souccar (Assistant Commissioner, Federal International Organization for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)) under direct examination by Commission Counsel Michel Dorval. The witnesses discuss challenges associated with the investigation and prosecution of large criminal cases. They discuss the relationship between Crown prosecutors and investigators in such cases and the immense workload and effort involved. Commissioner John C. Major asks several detailed questions. Jacques Shore (Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association) and Matthew Sullivan (Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada) cross-examine the members of the panel. Justice Major chastises Mr. Sullivan for asking a series of very basic, obvious, and irrelevant questions.
