The last of four former UN gangsters testifying at the murder trial of Cory Vallee said Thursday that he had been told fugitive Conor D’Monte may have been hiding in Vietnam. Earlier the man, who can only be called A, said the UN knew there was no extradition treaty between Canada and Vietnam so they considered it a safe haven.

A is not as dramatic a witness as were some of the other former UN members who testified earlier. He is expected to be on the stand for another week or so.

I am off now until next Wednesday but hope to get back to the trial for some of his cross-examination. I am still trying to get comments fixed on the blog. I will close them tomorrow for a few days as I will be out of town.

Here’s my story:

A former United Nations gang member testified Thursday that he was told fugitive gang leader Conor D’Monte was hiding out in Vietnam.

The man, who can only be identified as “A” due to a sweeping publication ban, told B.C. Supreme Court that UN member Amir Eghtesad passed along the details of D’Monte’s whereabouts several years ago.

Witness A spent his fourth day on the stand at the trial of alleged UN hitman Cory Vallee. Vallee is charged with conspiracy to kill the Bacon brothers over several months in 2008 and 2009, as well as the first-degree murder of Bacon pal Kevin LeClair on Feb. 6, 2009.

D’Monte was charged with the same conspiracy and murder in January 2011, but fled the country. He remains on the RCMP’s most wanted list and is the subject of an Interpol alert indicating he has been charged with murder in Canada.

REAL SCOOP: Another ex-UN member testifies against Cory Vallee

  REAL SCOOP: Another ex-UN member testifies against Cory Vallee The Cory Vallee murder trial has had many interruptions in recent months. Some have been for defence and Crown to argue applications related to the evidence, which have been under ban. But this week, the last key Crown witness has taken the stand. He is an ex-UN member now testifying against accused killer Cory Vallee. So far, his evidence has been focused on UN gang history. I must call him “A.

Vallee also fled the country, but was later located in Mexico and returned to B.C.

When Witness A decided to cooperate with the police, he said he didn’t think he would have to testify against Vallee, who he was told was with D’Monte.

“I thought it was going to be pretty unlikely because I thought he was going to be in Vietnam,” A told Justice Janice Dillon.

A said he decided to become a Crown witness because “I just wanted to change my life.”

At the time, he had been told by police that a former friend and gang-mate, known only as D at the Vallee trial, was already cooperating.

That made him “sad,” he said.

He knew cooperating could put him in danger “because people who rat out … usually bad things happen,” A testified.

He said he had hoped he would get a payout from the police for cooperating, but was never offered any money, nor received any.

Two other former gang members who testified earlier at the Vallee trial — D and C — received payouts of $300,000 and $400,000 each, according to earlier testimony.

Witness A tried to explain to prosecutor Elizabeth Rennie why the UN gang wanted the Bacon brothers — Jonathan, Jarrod and Jamie — dead.

“We started beefing with them like in 2006,” he said.

“What do you mean by beefing?” Rennie asked.

A replied: “Just having problems with them. … Like drugs and gang stuff. We didn’t like each other.”

Asked to be more specific about the root cause of the deadly gang war, A struggled to answer.

“I don’t know. I don’t really know how to explain it. It doesn’t really make sense to me to this day,” he said.

He told Rennie that the UN was behind the shooting of Jonathan Bacon outside his family’s Abbotsford home in Septemer 2006, as well as the murder of Bacon friend Dave Tumber a few months earlier.

Both shootings fuelled the animosity, he said.

The UN later blamed the Bacons for the May 2008 murder of popular gang member Duane Meyer, who was shot outside an Abbotsford house where his children were staying.

A has already testified that Vallee was brought into the murder conspiracy by UN leader Clay Roueche specifically to kill the Bacons.

And he said that he helped Vallee by driving him around the Lower Mainland and scouting out locations that the Bacons frequented, as well as gathering intelligence on their vehicles and licence plate numbers.

Jonathan Bacon survived the 2006 shooting, but was murdered in Kelowna in August 2011. Three men with links to the UN gang are currently on trial for that killing.

Jarrod Bacon was recently returned to jail after violating parole conditions related to a sentence he received in a cocaine trafficking case.

And Jamie Bacon remains in custody awaiting trial in the October 2007 Surrey Six murder case.

Vallee’s trial continues.
