Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – May 23, 2007 (Part 3 of 4)

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

Witness: Raymond Kobzey

Raymond Kobzey (a former member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) security service and of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS)) testifies. Under direct examination by Commission Counsel Anil Kapoor, Mr. Kobzey speaks about his extensive Canadian and American military experience prior to joining the RCMP, his work in the RCMP’s security service, the extent of his knowledge of Sikh extremism in the early 1980s, information sharing between the RCMP and CSIS, physical surveillance of Talwinder Singh Parmar, and CSIS threat assessments. Mr. Kobzey discusses a 1985 blast in Duncan, British Columbia that may have been a test conducted by Mr. Parmar of an explosives device. Mr. Kobzey testifies that CSIS would likely have focused more intently on Mr. Parmar had they known the blast in Duncan involved explosives.
