    Eleven lung specialists of the hospital Sacré-Cœur in Montreal continue to be an employee who allegedly hijacked 509 000 $ to pay for a condo, a cottage, a Tesla, and even a spa pool.

    “The property […] have been acquired, in whole or in part, from any monies stolen “, complain to the lung specialists, in a civil lawsuit against Matthew Brady, a resident of Saint-Jerome, 28 years old.

    The whole affair began in 2013, according to the court document made public this week at the palais de justice of Montreal.

    At the time, a secretary looked after the administrative affairs of the doctors and, after 35 years of service, she had their confidence.

    After all these years, the secretary intends to take his retirement. To prepare for the transition, his son Mathew Brady was recruited by lung specialists.

    Emergency call

    “It is as well as [the secretary] has entrusted his access codes to banking Mathew Brady,” says the court document.

    The doctors had nothing to report on the behavior of Brady until last month, when the secretary was called on an emergency to its patrons.

    “She was informed that [Brady] had admitted that it had diverted for its own benefit […] to $ 375,000 “, one can read in the lawsuit.

    But, at the same time, the secretary has insured that his son would pay back immediately. He would even have signed a cheque, payable to the order of lung specialists of the Sacred Heart, except that it turned out to be without funds.

    Continuing its audits, the secretary has discovered that his son allegedly hijacked another 134 000 $.

    Wholesale purchases

    In conducting their investigation, the lung specialists claim to have discovered that Brady had bought a share of a condo in Saint-Jérôme in 2015. The following year, he was offered a farm cottage at Mirabel for 390 000 $.

    And during the summer, it would have paid for a Tesla to $ 115,000 and a spa pool to $ 20,000, which he would install at his farmhouse.

    All of these purchases are suspect, believe lung specialists, given that Brady was paid $ 45,000 per year.

    As Brady has since found, the doctors have to enter their real property, waiting to be heard by a judge.

    “Without the benefit of a seizure before judgment of the property, it is to be feared that the recovery of the debt is illusory,” they successfully argued before the court.

    They have also filed a complaint with the police, but to this day, the database of the ministry of Justice indicates no criminal charges.

    It has been impossible for The Journal to join Matthew Brady.
