Last Wednesday, Quebec’s anti-corruption squad (UPAC) warned vaccine passport fraudsters investigators are on the case.
UPAC asked the public to report any such cases www.upac.gouv.qc.ca. Anyone producing, trafficking or using fake vaccine passports could be charged with fraud, corruption, the production and use of false documents under the Criminal Code, or criminal charges under the Public Health Act.
Public security minister Geneviève Guilbault confirmed knowledge of at least 150 open cases during a Thursday appearance on Radio-Canada. Guilbault said 30 of those are UPAC investigations of public employees suspected of corruption or attempted corruption. The remainder involve investigations of the public by Sécurité Québec or other police forces.
