OTTAWA—The strange saga of potato exporter Hendrik (Henk) Tepper grew stranger Wednesday.
The federal Conservative government appeared to scold a Liberal MP for raising the case of Tepper, now jailed in Lebanon over an allegedly low-grade shipment of potatoes to Algeria in 2007, and suggested the high-profile Commons attention is unhelpful to his cause.
Liberal MP Dominic Leblanc called the government to account for why the owner of New Brunswick’s largest potato growing operation is still in jail with no end in sight. “Eight months in a Beirut jail for dubious allegations about potatoes sent to Algeria four years ago? This makes no sense at all.”
