Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to waive solicitor-client privilege so former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould can publicly address allegations of political interference related to the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin Group Inc.

In a letter to the prime minister published on social media Sunday, Scheer also requested that Trudeau make public any confidential communications to or from the prime minister or his staff in relation to the criminal case surrounding the Montreal-based construction firm, which is facing corruption charges on accusations it funnelled $48 million in bribes to Libyan government officials in order to win business.

Scheer argued transparency is necessary so the case can proceed “free from the cloud of scandal and accusation.”
