Complaint: Will Former FCAA Investigator Sandy Novak Be Criminally Charged With Perjury? As reported earlier this year, the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Saskatchewan has severely admonished the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority (formerly called the Saskatchewan Financial Services Commission) for failure to disclose documents in its possession. In the OIPC Commissioner’s Report, the FCAA admitted to having deliberately withheld eight bankers boxes of documents from disclosure to the Respondents involved in an administrative proceeding being conducted by the FCAA. In shocking contrast to the revelations provided in the OIPC’s Report, is the sworn testimony and multiple sworn affidavits of the FCAA’s staff members, Securities Division Deputy Director Ed Rodonets and former Securities Division Investigator Sandy Novak. During the FCAA’s investigation and proceedings, spanning nearly four years’ time, both Rodonets and Novak have sworn repeatedly that they had provided the Respondents with full disclosure of all materials gathered during the FCAA’s investigation. Additionally, FCAA Securities Division Deputy Director and Legal Counsel Sonne Udemgba has also, both orally and in writing, repeatedly stated that the FCAA had disclosed all materials which the FCAA had gathered during their investigation. Clearly, the statements and testimony given during these proceedings by FCAA management and staff does not align with the information presented by the Privacy Commissioner in the OIPC’s Report. In light of the truths uncovered in the OIPC Report, wherein the FCAA have been shown to have clearly withheld materials which should have been provided to the Respondents – and which the Privacy Commissioner in his Report has also ordered the FCAA to release – the obvious question that begs to be asked is, will these FCAA management and staff face criminal charges related to perjury, suborning perjury and obstruction of justice? Additional information will be posted as it becomes available. Disclosure Note: I am not a named party in any FCAA action or proceeding. I am reporting on facts which are publicly accessible but not yet widely known.
