Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – December 3, 2007 (Part 2 of 3)


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

Witness: Gary Bass

Gary Bass (Deputy Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)) continues testimony. Under direct examination by Commission Counsel Mark J. Freiman, Mr. Bass describes his involvement with the RCMP’s Air India task force, the rejuvenation of the investigation, and his own work in shepherding the investigation through the trial of Ajaib Singh Bagri and Ripudaman Singh Malik. Mr. Freiman asks Mr. Bass about the effect on terrorism investigations and prosecutions of caveats placed on the release of information by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). Mr. Bass discusses a 1985 blast in Duncan, British Columbia, that CSIS agents initially believed involved guns but which the RCMP later discovered may have been a test of an explosives device conducted by Talwinder Singh Parmar and his associates. Commissioner John C. Major, asking Mr. Bass about the incident in Duncan, questions the logic of CSIS’s and RCMP’s belief that the incident involved guns.
