UPAC arrests sixth man in connection with superhospital fraud case
Yohann Elbaz faces 16 charges, including fraud and money-laundering
Quebec’s anti-corruption squad has arrested Yohann Elbaz in connection with the awarding of the McGill University Health Centre’s public-private partnership contract.
He’s a lawyer and the brother of Yanai Elbaz, a former MUHC director who was arrested in February in connection with the same dossier.
Elbaz faces 16 charges, including fraud and money-laundering.
Last February, Quebec anti-corruption squad UPAC issued warrants for Elbaz’s brother Yanai and four other men, alleging fraud, breach of trust and laundering the proceeds of a crime, among other criminal acts.
The other men named were former MUHC head Arthur Porter, former CEO of SNC-Lavalin Pierre Duhaime, former SNC-Lavalin employee Riadh Ben Aïssa, and Jeremy Morris.
Yohann Elbaz will appear in court on May 23.
