OPP investigation of irregular financial transactions continues

ORILLIA, ON, July 27 /CNW/ - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigation into irregular financial transactions between provincial government ministries and vendors is continuing.

The investigation by the OPP's Anti-Rackets Branch is focused on irregular financial transactions between vendors and the Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Economic Development and Trade and Ministry of Community and Social Services. On July 15, 2010, the OPP executed search warrants on the offices of the three ministries and seized a large volume of documentary and electronic records that are currently being reviewed.

As this is an ongoing criminal investigation, the OPP will be unable to provide further details at this time to protect the integrity of the investigation.
