Irwin Cotler, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, today announced his decision to waive solicitor-client privilege and make public the investigative report of the Hon. Fred Kaufman into the murder conviction of Steven Truscott…
The Department of Justice’s Criminal Conviction Review Group this week provided lawyers for Mr. Truscott and the Ontario Attorney General with a copy of the Kaufman report, edited for privacy purposes. They now have 30 days to notify the Department if they wish to protect additional information contained in the report. Once this process is completed to the satisfaction of parties, the report will be made public.
