A trio of former union officials with OPP are scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, after they were charged earlier this summer in a fraud investigation.
Two business associates were also charged in the 19 month investigation conducted by the RCMP Financial Crime and Anti-Corruption Units.
It’s alleged the group set up a network which secretly owned companies and offshore investments, and defrauded union members to fund it.
Charged with fraud over $5,000 and laundering proceeds of crime:
-Karl WALSH (52) of West Gwillimbury,
-James CHRISTIE (48) of Midland,
-Martin BAIN (50) of Oro-Medonte,
-Andrew McKAY (54) of Toronto, and
-Francis CHANTIAM (60) of New Jersey, USA.
