Commission of Inquiry into the Investigation of the Bombing of Air India Flight 182
Witness: Lynne Jarrett
Lynne Jarrett testifies under direct examination by Commission Counsel Brian Gover about her work conducting physical surveillance for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) from 1983 to 1984, for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) after its creation in 1984, and again for the RCMP upon her return to the force in August 1985. She explains her decision to leave CSIS and return to the RCMP and discusses her surveillance of Talwinder Singh Parmar in detail. Jacques Shore (Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association) cross-examines Ms. Jarrett about the limited training she received in the conducting of surveillance and what, in hindsight, she might have done differently. Laura Pitcairn, Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada, cross-examines Ms. Jarrett, asking a series of questions for clarification. Commissioner John C. Major asks the witness some brief questions and Mr. Gover briefly re-examines the witness.
