Inquiries on CPAC - The Arar Inquiry – May 26, 2005 (Part 1 of 4)


The Commission of Inquiry into the Actions of Canadian Officials in Relation to Maher Arar

The Commission hears an intervention by Catherine Beagan Flood (on behalf of the House of Commons) asserting parliamentary privilege over the proceedings of the House of Commons and legislative committees of the House. Ms. Beagan Flood argues that transcripts of parliamentary proceedings cannot be referenced during the cross-examination of witnesses appearing before the Commission. Lorne Waldman (Counsel for Mr. Arar), Barbara A. McIsaac (Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada), and Commission Counsel Paul J. J. Cavalluzzo respond.
