Looking Back: Schreiber Testimony at House of Commons

Looking Back: Schreiber Testimony at House of Commons

Richard Auger sits with Karlheinz Schreiber before the House of Commons Ethics Committee.

OTTAWA PUBLIC INQUIRY LAWYER – Much of my legal work in Ottawa has involved public inquiries. The most recent was the high-profile Oliphant Inquiry, throughout which I was a key legal counsel for witness Karlheinz Schreiber.

My role providing legal advice for Mr. Schreiber, however, goes back further than the inquiry itself. In November of 2007, I assisted Mr. Schreiber by representing him before the Parliamentary Ethics Committee.

During that hearing, Mr. Schreiber fielded questions on a wide variety of issues including:

  • Mr. Schreiber’s 2007 lawsuit seeking $300,000 from former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
  • “Bear Head Industries,” a company which Schreiber incorporated in Ottawa and which was intended to set up a manufacturing plant for light-armoured vehicles in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

Are you preparing to participate as a witness in a public inquiry or other hearing? It’s important to contact an experienced public inquiry and defence lawyer, who can advise you on how to proceed.
