Notes on Holt's letter 5: the RCMP asked for Grewal's personal copies of the tapes
Holt for the first time explains the story of last week when it emerged that Grewal had given the RCMP additional recordings. According to Holt,
"All Gurmant did, via his lawyer, was forward to the RCMP his personal copy of all recordings, likely so that they could compare that set to the official set already in their hands. … This story also raises serious questions regarding just how the media found out that the RCMP had requested this extra set of recordings from Gurmant's lawyer. "Several new points here. This is the first time that we've heard that the 'new' recordings were Grewal's personal copy. Second (and more interesting) is the statement that the RCMP requested these tapes as part of their investigation.
