SNC Lavalin Fraud

November 29, 2012 by  

SNC Lavalin Fraud, Many people fumed when Pierre Duhaime left his presidential post at Canadian engineering giant SNC-Lavalin last spring. There was a dark cloud over his head and a $5-million severance payment in his pocket. The case now widens as Quebec’s anti-corruption force arrested the former chief executive at his home Wednesday on charges of fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud and using forged documents related to the $1.3 billion McGill University Health Centre in Montreal. SNC-Lavalin beat out a Spanish-led consortium to win the bid for the mega-hospital project now under construction.

An arrest warrant filed at the Montreal courthouse charges Duhaime and Riadh Ben Aissa, a former executive vice-president at SNC-Lavalin, with conspiracy, fraud of more than $5,000, and using a counterfeit document.

He is being held in jail and will be released on bail, said a spokeswoman for the anti-corruption force of the Sûreté du Québec.

Duhaime, 57, becomes just the latest player in the province to fall in the all-out war on corruption. So far, the intensive probes have targeted municipal politicians, bureaucrats and local construction firms whose fingerprints have smudged municipal and provincial infrastructure projects.
