Two more arrests connected to inquiry
Two men have been arrested in Quebec on numerous charges - including abuse of power by a public official and defrauding the government.
Quebec’s anti-corruption police squad says Paolo Catania and Francois Theriault were arrested by provincial police.
The squad says an arrest warrant has also been issued for Antonio Catania.
Theriault and Paolo Catania were both released by investigators on promises to appear in court on May 1.
The men are also facing charges of conspiracy, fraud, use of a counterfeit document and accepting secret commissions.
Another man named Paolo Catania faces criminal charges in a separate high-profile case in Quebec.
Paolo Catania runs a construction empire alleged to have extensive ties to the Sicilian Mafia.
Quebec’s construction inquiry has heard testimony about tight links between Catania’s business and the most senior figures in the Rizzuto crime family.
