Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – June 6, 2007 (Part 2 of 3)


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

Witness: Rodney Wallis

Commission Counsel Brian Gover enters into evidence a series of documents received by the Commission from Air India. Rodney Wallis (an international civil aviation security consultant) testifies under direct examination by Mr. Gover, who asks about recommendations concerning aviation security made in earlier testimony by Kathleen Sweet. Mr. Wallis agrees with Ms. Sweet’s view that aviation security concerns must, whenever possible, be handled on the ground. He further comments on how and why certain governments have disputed this principle and failed to honour their international obligations as a result. Mr. Wallis explains the challenge of defining an aircraft in distress. He also discusses a wide range of issues related to aviation security.
