William Warden (a former employee of the Department of External Affairs and Canada’s High Commissioner in New Delhi, India, from 1983 to 1986) continues his testimony before the Commission. Norman Boxall, Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association, cross-examines Mr. Warden. Soma Ray-Ellis, Counsel for Air India, cross-examines Mr. Warden about the allegation that Air India and the Indian government were “crying wolf” on the subject of threats to “all Air India flights” in 1985. Commissioner John C. Major interjects, deeming the question inappropriate in the absence of corroborating evidence. Barney Brucker, Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada, cross-examines Mr. Warden about the potential threat posed to Air India in the weeks before the bombing.
