Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is reviewing a highly classified report on his ill-fated trip to India from the newly-created national security and intelligence committee of parliamentarians.
The committee says the document includes 18 findings and six recommendations based on its review of allegations of foreign interference in Canadians’ political affairs, risks to the prime minister’s security and inappropriate use of intelligence.
Trudeau will now determine how much can be divulged publicly without damaging national security, international relations or solicitor-client information, although an unclassified version will eventually be tabled in the House of Commons and the Senate.
The investigation was prompted by the controversy that engulfed Trudeau’s trip to India in February after it was revealed that a convicted attempted murderer had been invited to two events with the prime minister.
Jaspal Atwal was photographed at one event in Mumbai with the prime minister’s wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau.
His invitation to a second event was rescinded after news of his presence broke.
