Liberal MP Raj Grewal under investigation over India trip invitations

in Canada by

Liberal MP and former in charge of Trudeau’s invite manager for former criminals, Raj Grewal, is now under investigation by the federal ethnics commissioner.

Via National Post:

The revelation prompted Conservatives and New Democrats to write to ethics commissioner Mario Dion, asking for a formal investigation into whether Grewal violated the Conflict of Interest Code that governs MPs.

According to a letter obtained by the Post, addressed to Conservative MP Stephanie Kusie, dated April 5 and marked “confidential,” the commissioner concluded that the information Kusie provided the previous week “meets the criteria” for him to take the steps towards an investigation.

Dion is giving Grewal until May 4 to provide a written response, according to the letter. Once one is received, or after that deadline passes, stipulations in the code require Dion to decide on the necessity of a formal “inquiry” within 15 business days.
