WATCH: OPP haven't determined when government hard drives were accessed yet

Officer testimony sheds light on gas plant email deletion

The OPP officer whose request for a warrant in the gas plant scandal sparked an explosive new round of scandal at Queen's Park, says police documents don't reveal current Premier Kathleen Wynne oversaw any email deletion as the Tories allege.

In his testimony at a legislative committee looking into the gas plant scandal, Det. Cst. Andre Duval the investigation is focused on former chief-of staff to Dalton McGuinty, who faces criminal charges. He's alleged to have brought in another staff member's tech-savvy boyfriend Peter Faist to wipe information from government computers.

While he says he doesn't believe other warrants will be issued there could possibly be other charges.

Duval says officers have only uncovered the dates and times four of the 24 computers at the centre of this investigation were accessed.

Wynne took office on Feb. 11th and the username police are focusing on - "Wendy Waiye" - was active until March 20th.

It's unclear right now if it was used after Feb. 11th. Duval says all the access times could take months to uncover.

Duval also pointed to Dell software installed on two computers which could possibly disguise, erase or transfer data. He says it's likely on these other computers.

While he reveals  Livingston, Faist his girlfriend Laura Miller have not spoken with police, Miller lawyer issued a statement saying " Laura agreed to cooperate in the investigation at all times.  Laura spoke to the OPP in September before asking me to facilitate the interview."

These allegations have not been proven in court.
