‘Canada’s golden boy loses his shine’: Headlines from around the world on Trudeau, SNC-Lavalin

As many Canadians tuned into Gerald Butt’s testimony on the SNC-Lavalin affair Wednesday — eyes across the world also seem to be watching the controversy unfold.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s former principal secretary testified before the Commons justice committee, defending the Prime Minister Office’s handling of the SNC-Lavalin case. It came almost a week after former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould testified, saying she faced political pressure from Trudeau’s party to prevent SNC-Lavalin from facing a criminal trial.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is engulfed in a major scandal.

It stemmed from SNC-Lavalin being not prosecuted by Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. She was pressured by Trudeau.

Butts’ Testimony: PMO Tried to Persuade Wilson-Raybould on SNC Lavalin, Not Pressure Her

OTTAWA—Jody Wilson-Raybould never complained about improper pressure to halt the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin until Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decided to move her out of her coveted cabinet role as justice minister and attorney general, the prime minister’s former principal secretary says.

Gerald Butts is testifying before the House of Commons justice committee and offering a “very different” version of events from those described last week in explosive testimony from Wilson-Raybould.

She told the committee she was subjected to relentless, inappropriate pressure—and even veiled threats about being removed as justice minister—to stop the trial of SNC-Lavalin on bribery and fraud charges related to contracts in Libya.

A long article, but worth reading.
