Four Historical Events that Reflect Offences in the Administration of Justice
The Criminal Code of Canada offers provisions for the prosecution of individuals who commit offences against the Administration of Justice.
Some historical Canadian events that reflect offences against the Administration of Justice include:
The Sponsorship Scandal of 2004: This involved the misuse of public funds by the federal government, including the payment of bribes to companies in exchange for their involvement in government sponsorship programs. This scandal led to several convictions for bribery and fraud.
The St-Lambert bribery case of 1977: This involved the bribery of a Quebec judge by a group of individuals seeking to influence the outcome of a case. The individuals involved were convicted of bribery and the judge was removed from office.
The contraband tobacco trade: Contraband tobacco trade involves the illegal production and sale of cigarettes, often in violation of tax laws. This has been a significant problem in Canada, with individuals and organized crime often involved.
The perjury trial of Craig Neville: Neville was a police officer who was charged and convicted of perjury after lying under oath during a criminal trial. His perjury was discovered during the investigation of another case, and he was subsequently sentenced to prison.
