Tony Accurso scheduled to testify when Charbonneau hearings resume

A former Quebec construction boss, whose name has been mentioned continously at the Charbonneau commission, is scheduled to testify for a week beginning September 2nd.

Tony Accurso has fought all the way to the Supreme Court in a bid to avoid taking the the stand, but has failed.

The highest court refused to hear his case.

Accurso may testify behind closed doors or there could a publication ban.

He could be arrested if he decides not to testify.

The hearings were to resume August 25th, but will instead start again in early September.
