Bill Tieleman - I have lots to say about the sudden guilty plea bargain in Basi-Virk - stay tuned
Regular readers will note that I have not offered my opinion on the sudden guilty plea bargain deal by David Basi and Bob Virk despite covering this case for nearly seven years, starting December 28, 2003 when police raided the BC Legislature.
That will change on Tuesday October 26 in this space, in 24 hours newspaper and at The Tyee online.
Stay tuned - I have lots to say and some of it will be very controversial.
In the meantime, my 2008 article "The A to Z of the Basi-Virk/BC Legislature Raid Case" on the 5th anniversary of the raid is still the definitive listing of all the major and minor players in the biggest political corruption scandal in BC for years.
Re-reading it will raise many questions about how this case suddenly ended.
