Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – September 20, 2007 (Part 3 of 3)


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

Witness: Jacques Jodoin

Jacques Jodoin (former Director-General of the Communication, Intelligence, and Warrants branch of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS)) testifies under direct examination by Commission Counsel Mark J. Freiman. Mr. Freiman asks Mr. Jodoin about his responsibility for CSIS policy on the handling of surveillance tapes and wiretap recordings, about policies with respect to electronic surveillance and the interception of private communications, about the management of wiretap tapes, and about sharing of information from intercepts with agencies such as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Mr. Jodoin explains obstacles preventing the disclosure of information gathered through technical intercepts and difficulties finding translators for wiretap recordings in Punjabi and other languages. He also speaks about a number of other matters related to the gathering of intelligence on the bombing of Air India flight 182. Norman Boxall (Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association), Tracey McCann (Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada), and Pradeep Chan (Counsel for the World Sikh Organization) cross-examine Mr. Jodoin. Mr. Chan asks Mr. Jodoin about the importance placed on having a member of the Sikh community serve as translator of wiretap recordings related to the Air India bombing. Mr. Freiman presents a lengthy series of documents to the Commission.
