VANCOUVER - Defence lawyers for two governments ministerial assistants accused of corruption are seeking documents that related to an alleged investigation of Liberal MLA Dave Hayer.

Defence lawyer Michael Bolton told B.C. Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Bennett that the defence still is seeking some very important documents that have not been disclosed by the Crown, including a reference to another investigation targeting Dave Basi that is referred to in documents as the "Basi B investigation."

Bolton suggested in court that this investigation probed an allegation that Basi collaborated with Hayer, MLA for Surrey Tynehead, to forgive debts owed to the Insurance Corp. of B.C. by some of Hayer's constituents.

The Crown received a 70-page defence brief this week, detailing problems with disclosure of certain documents still being sought that fall under solicitor-client privilege.

Special prosecutor Bill Berardino told the judge he will try to resolve some of the problems.

The lawyers are expected to return to court next week to discuss the matter with the judge.

A hearing will also be held Sept. 29 to deal with some documents.
