Kenneth Dibble (Charity Commission for England and Wales) continues his testimony before the Commission under direct examination by Commission Counsel Roger Bilodeau.

Richard P. Quance (Counsel for the Family Members of the Crew Member Victims of Air India Flight 182, and Indian Nationals) and Kathryn Hucal (Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada) cross-examine Mr. Dibble.
