LAWTON: PMO accused of trying to interfere in prosecution of Liberal-connected corporation

A bombshell Globe and Mail report says key players in the Prime Minister’s Office tried to get former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to interfere in the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin over bribes to Libyan officials.

A former SNC-Lavalin vice-president was charged with making over $100,000 in illegal contributions to the Liberal Party of Canada and numerous candidates. Company representatives have also met with Prime Minister’s Office officials 14 times since 2017 to lobby the government on “justice.”
