Internal whistleblower emails and memos mistakenly filed in Federal Court which disclosed allegations of misconduct by senior Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) executives were removed from public access by federal lawyers Thursday.

“The court has ordered that the documents be removed from the public record and returned to our office,” said Bronwyn Johns-O’Hara, spokeswoman for the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner. She added lawyers with the Department of Justice made the commissioner “aware of the sensitive nature of the information.”
