MONTREAL, Aug. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - Subsequent to a decision by the Bureau de Décision et de Révision on August 2, 2010, Carole Morinville feels it important that a number of clarifications be made.
Firstly, it should be noted that no one implicated in the decision of the Bureau de Décision et de Révision has been contacted by the Bureau. The decision was rendered ex parte, i.e. without the individuals involved having had an opportunity to testify, provide explanations, or above all rectify certain aspects and correct many of the highly erroneous allegations and conclusions leading to this decision, including the following:
- Contrary to what is indicated in the decision by the Bureau, no civil
proceedings have been instituted;
- Contrary to what is indicated in the decision by the Bureau, only
Ms. Morinville and/or her businesses are involved in the case in
- Contrary to what is indicated in the decision by the Bureau,
Roberto Diano, spouse of Ms. Morinville, has never directly or
indirectly participated in any type of investment solicitation among
Mtl Bagel Box and Mtl Bagel Co.
The speculation surrounding the possible involvement of Ms. Morinville's
husband and the company he heads, Mtl Bagel Box, is unfounded. The
company, which has been solely dedicated to the production and sale of
bagel bites since April 26, 2010 and has never approached clients of
Carole Morinville, Agence Carole Morinville or Carole Morinville et
Associés to invest in the business.
Therefore, the activities of Ms. Morinville which are under investigation
involve neither Roberto Diano nor the business of which he is a director
and majority shareholder.
Collaboration necessary and welcome
To date, neither the AMF nor the Bureau de Décision et de Révision has
communicated with Carole Morinville. Ms. Morinville nevertheless intends
to offer her full cooperation to the organizations in charge of the
investigation and will be completely transparent in her dealings with
Please note that no interviews will be given.
