Commissioner Justice John C. Major speaks about the anticipated testimony of Canada’s Privacy Commissioner before the Commission. Commission Counsel Brian Gover makes remarks relating to arrangements to have representatives of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) testify before the Commission.

Mr. Anand responds and a lengthy procedural discussion ensues. Rajesh Chopra (Air India) resumes his testimony under cross-examination by Norman Boxall (Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association). Mr. Boxall asks Mr. Chopra about Air India’s ceasing of its Canadian operations after the bombing of Air India flight 182 and about Air India’s confidence in the security procedures at Canadian airports. Mr. Gover asks Mr. Chopra about a variety of documents provided to the Commission by Air India. The witness is also asked about Air India’s source of intelligence concerning threats against its operations, about Air India’s understanding of the concept of threats to it in 1985, and about various telex messages pertaining to threats to Air India in the early 1980s and in 1985 specifically. Bruce MacDougall (Counsel for Air India) briefly cross-examines Mr. Chopra. The Commissioner also briefly questions the witness.
