Helena Guergis and Rahim Jaffer cleared by RCMP

RCMP confirms no further action will be taken against couple


 

Independent MP Helena Guergis and her husband, former MP Rahim Jaffer, have been cleared of allegations of criminal wrongdoing leveled against them this year by the RCMP, according to the couple’s lawyers. Guergis and Jaffer released statements through their lawyers on Wednesday saying the probe is finished and no further action will be taken against them. PMO spokesperson Sara MacIntyre said Guergis will not be invited to rejoin the Conservative Party caucus, and that there were “several factors” that led to her departure from cabinet and caucus. MacIntyre said the Ethics Commissioner is still looking into a letter written by Ms. Guergis to promote a company that was involved last year in discussions with Mr. Jaffer’s own business. RCMP Sergeant Stéphane Turgeon confirmed that the probe is over.
