As I wrote earlier today, there seem to be some missing search warrants. It wasn’t just David Basi and Bob Virk who were the targets of RCMP searches almost seven years ago today. Search warrants were also issued for the Pilothouse offices in Victoria, Eric Bornmann’s home office and Bruce Clark’s office and, I am told, his bank records.
Why the bank records? To see if any money changed hands a la Bornmann.
But we can’t check that out because only the warrants related to the Basi searches were released.
I spent part of the afternoon at the courthouse trying to figure out what happened to the other warrants. Were they released but not reported on? Were they not part of the media application? Were they left in some kind of limbo by the Judge?
After being referred to three different wickets and then just as I was started on a second round of the merry-go-round that is court registry for regular folks, some kind soul told me to call the Special Prosecutor’s office. “I think the judge told the media to negotiate directly with the Special Prosecutor’s office,” was the advice.
So my new question is, “is the special prosecutor holding up the release of all the warrants? And if so, who does that help?”
