"RCMP passed on charging former Harper aide Nigel Wright to get his testimony in Duffy trial" by Laura Stone, quotes Nigel Wright's Lawyer, Peter Mantas, in an article about why the RCMP decided against including Wright's testimony in the Duffy Case.

"Mr. Wright’s lawyer, Peter Mantas, said in a statement Friday that the RCMP’s “detailed and thorough investigation” concluded there was no reasonable prospect of convicting Mr. Wright."

“In addition, Mr. Wright did not ask for favourable consideration from the RCMP, nor was it offered. The report underlines that Mr. Wright's intention was to secure the repayment of taxpayer funds and that he believed his actions were always in the public interest and lawful,” Mr. Mantas said."
