CALGARY—A former United Conservative Party leadership candidate at the centre of the ongoing "kamikaze" scandal has been ordered to return $26,500 in allegedly unlawful donations, court documents say.

Since January, Alberta's election commissioner has been investigating the finances of Jeff Callaway's 2017 UCP leadership bid — and whether the team of current UCP Leader Jason Kenney orchestrated Callaway's campaign to attack Kenney's main rival.

The order, obtained by the Star, is attached to an affidavit filed in court as part of an unsuccessful bid by Callaway and five others to pause the commissioner's investigation until after the April 16 provincial election.
