Witness: Daniel Dezainde

Associate Commission Counsel Guy Cournoyer continues direct examination of Daniel Dezainde (a former director general of the Quebec wing of the Liberal Party of Canada) with questions focusing on the financial problems of the Quebec wing of the Liberal Party of Canada. He recalls Jacques Corriveau’s description of a “system of kickbacks” from communications agencies to Mr. Corriveau himself and to the Liberal Party. Mr. Dezainde becomes distraught while describing his firing of Beryl Wasjman and subsequent threats of retribution from Giuseppe (Joseph) Morselli.
