Old government officials scrambled to stick together facts and "Debunk" an embarassing story last February immediately after news broke that an assassination would have been invited to an exclusive event during Prime Minister Justin Trudau's official visit to India.
New documents received by CBC News by Access to Information Canadian officials struggle to work out as JASPAL AATWAL has been invited to a dinner hosted by Canada's High Commissioner to India – while pushing back on a media report suggesting them # 39 ; We know about the invitation from the start.
A former member of an illegal Separate Separatist group was convicted in 1986 by trying to kill an Indian cabinet minister visiting British Columbia. His participation in a tour event led to the most durable symbol of Trudeau's troubled India trip: a photo of the aqua with the wife of the prime minister, Sophie Gregare Triesau, in a separate tour event.
Atawson's presence, and the security issues arose, serving the Crowning embarrassing Treadau's trip to India. The prime minister was repeatedly criticized during the trip for wearing traditional Indian clothing to official functions. His efforts to persuade the Indian government to raise tariffs on Canadian peas, beans and chick peas failed.
Most of the emails are hard to edit. The National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliament is releasing its own release this afternoon on the national security implications of the India trip.
CBC News said first of all in a tower event in a News Story on February 21, kicking off a flurry of emails between some of the most trusted Bureaucrats in the trust of the National Security and Security files.
An email sent the day the CBC History was released makes it clear the top mesh did not know who had invited the AWAL.
"The personality was apparently placed on the guest list by a minister – he did not know what," said the email of David Angell, assistant secretary to the Foreign Affairs and Defense Policy.
In fact, MP Randeep Sarai – one of the 14 liberal MPs traveling with the PM in India – admitted to put the name of a guest to the guest list.
Later in the same day, Daniel Jin – the country's national security advisor at the time – writes in an Internal Email: "It is not realistic to screen all guests on all reception lists and we have no information until the AM suggests that a Potential visitor may be problematic. "
On February 23, the Vancouver Son published a story claiming the Canadian Security Intelligence Service was informed of the AWAIL's participation in an official tour event on 17th February. This story tackled another flurry of emails at high levels of the Tudeau government.
In an email range under the topic line, can we debunk, Jean, Angell, Assistant Secretary to Cabinet (Security and Intelligence) Caroline Xavier and anonymous federal officials tried to gamamili to advance the story and squelch the proposal that The government has warned about the aqua.
Who knows what, and when?
"Can we confirm the HC (high commission) did not get this," says one email sent to Jin at 8:30 on February 23. "On the phone with the plane and they want to know."
Jean's reply, sent only five minutes later, was black turned out.
Jean then writes to Angela: "Can you cope with the mission that no information has been received in advance? … Have most media outlined in the background that all the variances have been proven wrong so far, however, someone continues to test and feed this information. "
Just 30 minutes later, Jean sent another email to an unsuspecting passer to ask what information the mission in New Delhi was getting about the awax's presence.
"Information from XIS, information from RCMP or information from private citizens? Why did not they catch up with us before issue of invitation came up?"
On February 22rd and 23rd, in briefing to reporters, Jean offered a theory: that journal factions within the Indian Government were arranged for the attendance of the AWALTA in order to empathize the Tripue and Sabotage trip.
In April, Jean told a commission committee that he had made the briefings to sell what he describes as a "false story" and "co-ordinated misinformation" about Tripuse Trip.
Jean retired from the public service in late April.
