The OECD, an international economic group that oversees a global anti-bribery convention says it’s monitoring the allegations that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau interfered in the criminal prosecution against SNC-Lavalin. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development says it’s concerned by accusations that Trudeau and staff in his office tried to persuade former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to let the engineering giant negotiate a deal, rather than pursue criminal charges.
