A former police informant testified in an Ontario court on Tuesday that there was a plot to assassinate Prime Minister Paul Martin when he was the finance minister.
But the Crown alleges the man has fabricated the alleged assassination plan.
Accused coc aine trafficker Vincent Brown testified at an abuse of process hearing in Brampton, Ont. on Tuesday that two contracts on the life of Paul Martin – worth up to $300,000 -- were being shopped around in Toronto's underworld in 2003, the Toronto Sun reported.
"Someone hired me to assassinate Paul Martin," he told his lawyer Sam Goldstein.
"I turned the offer down. I felt I was being set up."
The RCMP gave Brown a polygraph test on May 27, 2003 and nine days later, The Canadian Press reported that the Mounties had ramped up their protection of Martin.
