TORONTO ─ OPP investigators looking into a Liberal government computer wiping scandal have found no evidence that Premier Kathleen Wynne ordered public records destroyed, Det.-Const. André Duval testified at a committee hearing Thursday.

Experts are still trying to determine what was done to 24 hard drives that were accessed by an unauthorized person in the dying days of the premier Dalton McGuinty regime.

Duval said the OPP are focused on the activities of McGuinty's former chief of staff who allegedly arranged the access, but he did not rule out an expansion of the investigation.

"We follow the information that the investigation will produce. If there are more people, down the road, who are involved in other criminal offences, these leads will be followed and investigated to the fullest," Duval said.

Under questioning from the Progressive Conservatives and Liberals, Duval said Wynne's office was not under investigation.
