Harris asks Minister to release findings of investigation into export of arms

Jack Harris, MP for St. John's East and NDP Foreign Affairs Critic asks for the foreign affairs minister to release detailed findings of his investigation.

Since April exemptions to the Turkish embargo ended up in Nagorno-Karabakh used by Azeri forces.

Last Month, Global Affairs suspended arms exports to Turkey while investigating allegations that Canadian sensors were diverted to Azerbaijan, but now the evidence is clear.

The Arms Trade Treaty requires Canada to prevent, detect and stop brokering of military goods to users other than intended customers and to stop exports used against civilians.

Will the Minister publicly release detailed results of his own investigation and cancel all arms export to Turkey?
