Gorilla Radio with Stevie Cameron on Last Amigo Karlheinz Shreiber Apr. 23, 2001

Eds. note: Karlheinz Shreiber managed to stave off yet again extradition from Canada to his native Germany, the former arms trader and emissary for German industry, refused to testify explicitly today (Nov. 29, ’07) on matters of interest to the Parliamentary committee struck to hear his allegations of deals cut with the former sitting prime minister, Brian Mulroney before being let out of jail, and allowed to gather his pertinent materials. The state allowed he be held in house arrest pending the outcome of the growing scandal hearing. Shreiber, a Canadian citizen, has fought the extradition proceedings launched by Germany for his alleged involvement with political crimes committed in that country more than a decade ago.
Here’s how GR covered the initial press discovery of the connections between Brian Mulroney and Karlheinz Shreiber back in 2001.
