Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – June 20, 2007


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

Commissioner John C. Major speaks about unexpected delays affecting the Commission’s proceedings. Jacques Shore (Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association) makes remarks affirming support for the Commissioner and his work and expressing concern about the potential testimony of unnamed witnesses expected to appear before the Commissioner in an in-camera hearing, which no representative of the victims’ families would be permitted to attend. Mr. Shore ultimately agrees not to contest the in-camera hearing. Mr. Salat (Counsel for the Globe and Mail) makes a submission objecting to the proposed in-camera session and a brief discussion ensues between Commissioner Major and Mr. Salat. Commission Lead Counsel Mark J. Freiman moves that the Commission immediately retire to the in-camera session. The Commissioner later reconvenes the public hearing, announcing that there will not be an in-camera hearing due to apprehension on the part of the witnesses. The Commissioner concludes the day’s hearing by briefly summarizing the work of the Commission to date.
