Canadian lawmakers agreed on Friday to expand a conflict-of-interest investigation into the WE Charity to include the organization’s operations in Kenya.

The House of Commons ethics committee reached a deal across party lines to hold two more meetings to hear testimony from officials linked to WE Charity, including founders Marc Kielburger and Craig Kielburger and Guy Spencer Elms, the charity’s lawyer in Kenya. Sofia Marquez, WE’s former director of government relations, and Chief Financial Officer Victor Li will also be called upon to speak.
