Thomas Quiggin (Nanyang Technological University) testifies. Under direct examination by Commission Counsel Anil Kapoor, Mr. Quiggin describes “asymmetrical” threats such as transnational terrorism and organized crime and the different responses that such threats require. Commission Counsel Roger Bilodeau asks Mr. Quiggin a series of questions about terrorism financing. Jacques Shore (Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association) and Loretta Colton (Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada) cross-examine Mr. Quiggin. Gian Singh Sandhu (former President of the World Sikh Organization in Canada) testifies under direct examination by Mr. Kapoor. Discussion focuses on the reaction of the Canadian Sikh community to the bombing of Air India flight 182, support among a minority of Sikhs in Canada for various extremist causes, cooperation of members of the Sikh community with the police, and related matters.
