Minister orders administrative investigation of Montreal police
In light of multiple new and serious allegations of corruption against members of Montreal’s police service, Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux announced he will be beefing up the investigation he announced this week and launching a separate administrative probe into the internal workings of the SPVM.
The allegations, communicated to the minister by the Sûreté du Québec late Thursday evening, are so numerous, serious and complex that Coiteux has decided to add investigators from the RCMP, Quebec City, Longueuil, and Gatineau police forces to the SQ team. The investigation will now be co-directed by SQ assistant director general Yves Morency and Madeleine Giauque, the head of the Bureau des enquêtes indépendantes (BEI), an independent police-oversight agency set up in 2013.
The investigation will be looking into disturbing allegations by two former SPVM officers. Jimmy Cacchione and Giovanni Di Feo told TVA Tuesday evening that they had been ousted from the police service in 2014 because they were about to blow the whistle on corruption allegations that would have hurt the reputation of then-police chief Marc Parent and other high-ranking officers. They alleged that the Montreal police internal affairs division made up incriminating evidence to discredit them and justify their dismissal.
But after Coiteux announced an investigation of those allegations by an SQ team, more allegations surfaced.
