About the Inquiry
The Internal Inquiry was established on December 11, 2006 under Part I of the Inquiries Act on the recommendation of the Minister of Public Safety. The Honourable Frank Iacobucci has been appointed Commissioner. In that capacity, the Commissioner has all the powers set out in the Act, including the authority to hold hearings, summon witnesses and gather evidence needed to conduct the Inquiry.

As Commissioner of the Inquiry, Mr. Iacobucci’s mandate will be to determine:

whether the detention of Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Abou-Elmaati and Muayyed Nureddin in Syria or Egypt resulted, directly or indirectly, from actions of Canadian officials, particularly in relation to the sharing of information with foreign countries and, if so, whether those actions were deficient in the circumstances,

whether there were deficiencies in the actions taken by Canadian officials to provide consular services to Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Abou-Elmaati and Muayyed Nureddin while they were detained in Syria or Egypt, and

whether any mistreatment of Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Abou-Elmaati and Muayyed Nureddin in Syria or Egypt resulted, directly or indirectly, from actions of Canadian officials, particularly in relation to the sharing of information with foreign countries and, if so, whether those actions were deficient in the circumstances;

This Inquiry is expected to deal with sensitive national security matters. While public hearings are possible, it is likely the Inquiry will be carried out largely in private.

The report resulting from the Inquiry is to be submitted to the Government by January 31, 2008.
