Their rap sheet or as I like to call it Criminal Record needs no explanation.
MONTREAL — New criminal charges have been filed in connection with the RCMP investigation into several people who worked at Revenue Canada’s office in Montreal.
Two former employees of the office, Nicola Iammarrone, 53, and Adriano Furgiuele, 45, were named in a new series of indictments to emerge from the investigation. Furgiuele is alleged to have received a $150,000 bribe from Francesco Bertucci, 62, of Côte St-Luc.
At the time of the alleged offence, Bertucci was president of the investment firm Thomson Tremblay. Court documents filed in previous cases allege Bertucci paid the bribe to allow his firm to make more than $2 million in business deductions.
The new indictments allege the bribe was paid to help commit more than $450,000 in fraud against the revenue agency. Bertucci is also charged in an indictment filed in the case.
Iammarrone is charged with breach of trust and fraud while handling Bertucci’s files. Furgiuele lead a team of auditors with Revenue Canada when the alleged offences took place. He faces five charges, including breach of trust and fraud, in the case related to Bertucci.
The alleged offences occurred between 2006 and 2008. Furgiuele and Iammarrone were fired in 2009.
All three men are scheduled to appear before a judge at the Montreal courthouse in March.
