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

Witness: Warren Sweeney

Loretta Colton, Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada, requests the postponement of testimony by a witness anticipated to appear before the Commission. Commission Counsel Anil Kapoor makes a brief submission. Commissioner Justice John C. Major denies Ms. Colton’s request but agrees to defer cross-examination of the witness. Warren Sweeney (a former investigator and analyst in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) security service and a former analyst in the RCMP’s counter-terrorism branch) continues his testimony before the Commission. Under direct examination by Mr. Kapoor, Mr. Sweeney speaks about his work in investigating potential threats to Air India in 1985 prior to the bombing of Air India flight 182 and about the challenges that he encountered.
