Inquiries on CPAC - Oliphant Commission; May 6, 2009


Commission of Inquiry into Certain Allegations Respecting Business and Financial Dealings Between Karlheinz Schreiber and the Right Honourable Brian Mulroney

Witness: Steven Whitla

The Commission hears testimony from Steven Whitla (a forensic account with Navigant Consulting). Under examination by Commission Counsel Evan Roitenberg, Mr. Whitla explains the flow of money in and out of two Swiss bank accounts held by Mr. Schreiber, the so-called “Frankfurt” and “Britan” accounts. He describes the opening of the “Britan” account with funds from the “Frankfurt” account shortly after a June 1993 meeting between Mr. Schreiber and Mr. Mulroney and a series of withdrawals coinciding with later meetings between the two men. Mr. Whitla is asked several times about the origin of funds for the “Frankfurt” account and he repeatedly states that Airbus was the likely source of the funds. There are brief cross-examinations by François Grondin (Counsel for Mr. Mulroney), Robert Houston (Counsel for Fred Doucet), and Richard Auger (Counsel for Mr. Schreiber).
