WINNIPEG — A man who claims he was recruited by the Winnipeg police to inform on the Hells Angels motorcycle gang is now suing the police for allegedly blowing his cover which forced him to go on the run from the gang that he believes is trying to kill him.
The man, who is identified only as John Doe in a statement of claim filed in Manitoba’s Court of Queen’s Bench in January, said his life is in jeopardy and he lives in “constant fear” after agreeing to become a paid informant with the Winnipeg police.
The allegations in the claim have not been proven in court.
According to the claim, the man was a former prospect for the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in 1998 in Winnipeg and Thunder Bay, Ont. Between 2003 and 2010, he served time in prison in Manitoba and agreed to become a paid informant for the Winnipeg Police Service.
The claim says he worked with WPS officers, including an officer named Grant Goulet who would visit the informant in prison and sometimes deposit money into his account.
When he was released from custody in August 2013, the claim said he met with Goulet and was given $500.
