VICTORIA – Former British Columbia Advocate General Woolley Oppal protects the Legislator, saying that Darryl Plexas acted on a recommendation when two senior officials were placed on administrative leave in an RCMP investigation.
Opal made the comments after meeting with Plexan and his special adviser Alan Mullen in the legislature today.
The chairman announced on Thursday that Oppal was appointed second counselor in the legislative power that saw Sergeant Army Gary Lenz and clerk of the house Craig James who escorted the building on Tuesday.
Opal says he can not comment on the specifics of the investigation, which mentions the appointment of two special prosecutors and the RCMP question in a statement confirming his investigation of administrative obligations.
He argues that an ongoing criminal investigation is in progress, which will take a long time to be resolved.
Attention has focused on President's actions in bringing the investigation forward and appointing Mullen, but Opal says these are secondary details of the investigation.
