Canada – The Hidden Key To The SNC-Lavalin Scandal

What the media is not talking about…What exactly did SNC-Lavalin do?   Trudeau wants to give the company a slap on the wrist…for what?   Lets have a look.

The hidden key to the SNC-Lavalin scandal

SNC-Lavalin, a Canadian corporate giant with an established history of corruption, is charged with bribing the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s brutal regime over many years, in exchange for lucrative contracts.

This case is the most serious and important prosecution of corporate corruption in modern Canadian history, and we’re arguing about jobs and whether Jody Wilson-Raybould is hard to get along with.

It is not only appropriate, but essential that this matter go to trial in an open and public hearing, so that Canadians can see how the world’s bloodiest tyrants are cossetted, indulged, and enabled.

Perhaps the most depressing spectacle of the entire affair is watching Justin Trudeau, a man who clearly aspires to greatness, debase himself and this nation, by begging, pushing, imploring Canada’s attorney general to let this company off the hook.

Then effectively firing her when she wouldn’t comply, and allowing her credibility to be undermined.

Just what kind of story does he think SNC-Lavalin’s caught up in, Anne of Green Gables?

SNC, a corporate giant, bribed a bloody despot’s regime in exchange for billions in contracts

For 16 years the global engineering and construction giant SNC-Lavalin cultivated a close relationship with the Muammar Gaddafi family, particularly his son Saadi.

According to criminal charges, for almost a decade of that period, up until the fall of the regime, SNC paid Saadi Gaadafi almost $50 million in exchange for billions of dollars in airport, pipeline, and water infrastructure projects.

Oh, and prisons.

Let’s go over that again.

A Canadian company is charged with bribing a family infamous around the world for murder, torture, rape, abductions, and widespread human rights abuses, and doing it for its own profit. They didn’t stop until the regime collapsed in 2011 and Swiss authorities came knocking. Charges were laid in April 2015.

Because of corruption’s profoundly oppressive impact on the Libyan people, the SNC-Libya charges are vastly more serious even than the McGill hospital bribery scandal, in which SNC paid bribes of $22.5 million to secure the contract.

Yet repeatedly and overwhelmingly from the prime minister and his advisors, the hand-wringing has focused on Canadian jobs, without substantiation of what the real job losses might be.

Not a whisper for the innocent civilians trampled under a dictator’s boot.

The kind of people who don’t have Michael Wernick’s mobile number.

The decision whether to proceed with criminal charges is something professional prosecutors do every day, following well-established principles of which the PMO seems blindly unaware.

In the case of remediation agreements, or DPAs (deferred prosecution agreements), those principles are supplemented by new amendments to the Criminal Code of Canada. But those changes don’t dramatically alter the prosecutorial landscape.

Crucially, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) also has the benefit of the full police investigation, other court records, documents and witness interviews, including material that may never be publicly disclosed.

The only complaint that’s been made over this whole scandal seems to be that the AG was not sufficiently persuaded by concerns about job losses to overturn the professional opinion of Canada’s most senior prosecutor.

Yup…amd why would Trudeau forgive a company for doing that?

RUSNAK REAFFIRMS SUPPORT FOR TRUDEAU

Under comments on the above article

You can have an opinion and march to the party line. That is what good foot soldiers do. However this scandal is more about the PM himself getting involved due to a family friend . His name is Jacques Bougie, recipient of the order of Canada is listed as a director at SNC-Lavalin Group, a director at McCain’s foods (Bill Morneau’s wife’s company) and listed as a mentor at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation. Close buddy of Jr????
according to Trudeau
“There is no question,” declared Trudeau, “that anyone who is guilty of the types of war crimes against innocents, against children, that Assad and his regime are needs to be held to account. I think there’s no question that the medium- and long-term future of a peaceful Syria no longer includes Bashar al-Assad.” – CBC News
and Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’ was different how?  Explain that Justin.  If SNC-Lavalin had contracts with Assad’s government, would he still have to  go?  Would he still have to be held to account?  Maybe I should ask Hadju and Rusnak?
PS- Its not clear if SNC-Lavalin even qualifies for a  deferred prosecution settlement.
