Scheer promises to publish new documents related to SNC-Lavalin's affair

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer says he plans to present new documents related to SNC-Laval's controversy this afternoon.

CBC News has been informed that two new documents relate to possible court proceedings in SNC-Lavalin, but are not related to the current criminal case against the company.

His announcement is scheduled for 14 hours. East time at the National Theater of Ottawa.

Torijevci hit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for SNC-Laval's affair since Globe and Mail broke the story for the first time in February.

Citing unspecified sources, newspapers reported that assistants at the PMO and others pressured former state attorney Jody Wilson-Rayboulda to intervene in the process of engineering and construction giant from Montreal.

The head of the public prosecutor's office decided last autumn that he would not negotiate a delayed processing agreement with a business that faces bribery charges related to business in Libya.

Wilson-Raybould later resigned from the cabinet, claiming he was removed from the site in January, as he would not retreat under the pressure of Trudeau and others.

Last week, Trudeau dropped out Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott of the Liberal Club for what he described as breaking the bond of trust with his fellow MPs due to government action in the SNC-Lavalin affair.
