Rob Ford will be subpoenaed to testify in Sandro Lisi’s extortion case

For the third time since becoming mayor, Rob Ford may be forced to give testimony in court. He wouldn’t be talking about anything as tame as conflict of interest or libel this time around, though. The Star reports that Toronto Police are getting ready to subpoena the mayor in his friend Sandro Lisi’s extortion case. If Ford is made to testify in court against Lisi, he may have to answer questions about Lisi’s alleged attempts to recover the crack video in the days after its existence became known to the public. Court testimony is given under oath, so any lies would be perjury. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 2, several months after election day.
