Nigel Wright, senators, MPs subpoenaed for Duffy trial, CBC says

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, senators and Conservative Members of Parliament have received subpoenas to testify at the trial of suspended Sen. Mike Duffy. The CBC quotes sources familiar with the Crown’s witness list as saying David van Hemmen, Wright’s former executive assistant, and Benjamin Perrin, who acted as the prime minister’s lawyer, have also been called to testify. Duffy, a former Conservative senator, faces 31 charges, including fraud, breach of trust and bribery. The last charge deals with a $90,000 cheque Duffy received from Wright to reimburse the Senate for challenged expense claims.
