Four people who were convicted six years ago on charges alleging they helped members of the Hells Angels in Quebec launder their dirty money have been ordered to report to penitentiaries within 48 hours to begin serving their sentences.
The order was issued Monday as part of a decision made by the Quebec Court of Appeal.
All four — Richard Felx, 64, a notary, Michel Ste-Marie, 77, and his children Dax, 46, and Marie Ste-Marie, 49 — were first charged in 2009 in Operation Diligence, an investigation led by the Sûreté du Québec, into how members of the Hells Angels based in Quebec had infiltrated specific segments of the province’s construction industry.
As part of the same investigation, Felx and the others were found to have helped Normand (Casper) Ouimet, Martin Robert and Alain Durand and four other full-patch members of the biker gang’s chapter in Trois-Rivières hide their money.
Felx’s alleged role was to create trusts and an offshore company in Mauritius, where he was able to send his clients’ money.
