Rick Westhead of the Toronto News reports on the testimony provided by the key witness for the government in the Conrad Black trial. David Radler is the link the government is using to present its case against Black. But because so much of this case appears to rest upon the credibility of this witness, it is likely to mean that the cross-examination will be crucial. The defense will likely be trying to show that the agreement Radler received is a key motivation for this testimony and that this testimony is therefore suspect.
