An Ontario court has ordered CBC to hand over files relating to the second trial of their former employee Jian Ghomeshi.
A CBC spokesperson has confirmed to CKNW they fully cooperated and submitted the documents to police and the crown prosecutor.
“I can confirm that we received a production order and fully cooperated with that request,” spokesperson Chuck Thompson said in an email.
Ghomeshi was supposed go on trial for a sexual assault charge in June, but negotiations between his lawyers and crown prosecutors led to an earlier than expected court appearance.
Tomorrow morning Ghomeshi is expected to appear in a Toronto court and sign an agreement of good behaviour. He will also make a short statement of apology in exchange for the charge being dropped.
The disgraced former CBC star was fired in 2014 after multiple allegations of sexual assault became public.
In March he was acquitted of all five charges from his first trial.
