Former Canadian Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said on Wednesday she had come under persistent and sometimes inappropriate pressure from government officials to be lenient on a major firm facing a bribery trial, Reuters news agency reports.
Wilson-Raybould said the pressure came from 11 people in the Prime Minister’s Office, the Privy Council Office and the minister of finance’s office.
She says she recalls 10 meetings and 10 phone calls concerning the SNC-Lavalin prosecution involving her or her staff.
