Adscam forensic report due soon

Last fall the Gomery commision hired forensic accountants to investigate where all the sponsorship money went. They will be publishing their report in the coming weeks. This is the type of investigation the Liberals should have conducted on their books but likley if there is any money that did go to the Quebec wing of the party, this investigation will probably find it.

Ottawa Sun's Greg Weston writes:

As the Gomery inquiry into the sponsorship scandal continues to hear from a colourful cast of cheats, liars and selective amnesiacs, the finishing touches are being applied to what could become the biggest political bombshell of the entire Adscam probe.

The result, we are told, is pure political dynamite.

For months, a crack team of top forensic accountants in Ottawa and Montreal has been following the Adscam money from the public purse through the elaborate money-laundering schemes of fraud and kickbacks at the heart of the sponsorship scandal. This is no ordinary group of number-crunchers. The answers could further rock the Liberal Party, and have a profound effect on the timing and outcome of the next federal election. So far, the accounting firm is keeping its findings under tight wraps.

But sources elsewhere tell us the investigators have pieced together literally tens of thousands of pages of financial records, everything from personal bank accounts to phone bills of companies and key players in the Adscam mess.
