    The Unité permanente anticorruption (UPAC) has arrested 4 people in Terrebonne on Thursday morning, for their participation in a scheme of corruption alleged by the authorities of the municipality. The ex-mayor Jean-Marc Robitaille was arrested by the police.

    Early in the morning, the police arrested the ex-chief of staff to the mayor, Daniel Bélec, as well as the ex-director general of the City, Luc Papillon.

    The entrepreneur Normand Trudel has also been arrested, as well as the engineer Jean Leroux.

    “These individuals are accused of corruption in municipal affairs and a breach of trust, and this, in connection with an alleged system of sharing contracts, which was intended to encourage firms to engineering companies, as well as some entrepreneurs, between 2001 and 2012,” says the UPAC in a press release.

    An arrest warrant is designed by Jean-Marc Robitaille.
