Could this be the start of arrests? Maybe these guys were part of the 75,000 indictments???
Former N.L. minister Byrne sentenced to 2-year jail term
Ed Byrne, a disgraced former Newfoundland and Labrador cabinet minister, was sentenced Friday to jail over a fraud case that has rocked provincial politics for almost three years.
Judge Mark Pike sentenced Byrne, who admitted to forging documents and faking signatures while stealing more than $117,000 through his tax-free constituency allowances, to two years, less a day, the maximum possible sentence recommended by the Crown.
“The crimes of which Ed Byrne has been convicted are very serious,” Pike told a provincial court hearing. “In his positions of high executive office … he abused his authority and the trust placed in him.”
RCMP arrest two Revenue Canada officials
Two Canada Revenue Agency employees have been arrested and two others suspended for their alleged roles in connection with a $4.5-million tax-fraud scheme, Revenue Minister Jean-Pierre Blackburn said Wednesday.
Blackburn said the two arrested employees were team leaders at the Montreal tax-services office of the CRA.
In an interview with CTV Newsnet’s Power Play, Blackburn said his organization called in the RCMP after the CRA’s investigation was underway.
“It shows that our own internal investigation works quite well,” he said. “Our employees are professional, there’s 45,000 of them, but sometimes (these) situations happen.”
