A former provincial government director and his spouse are accused of committing fraud, the Ontario Provincial Police said on Monday evening. The OPP is looking for a male suspect, a former senior bureaucrat with Ontario’s Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, who is facing three charges including fraud and conspiring to commit a criminal offence.
Charged with breach of trust, fraud and conspiring to commit a criminal offence
In January 2015, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a complaint involving a former Director at the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services of Ontario that involved an allegation of fraud and breach of trust. Shabbir, the 37-year old former director of also the startup LocaWoka Inc., and his spouse Rashida have been charged with breach of trust, fraud and conspiring to commit a criminal offence.
The OPP has issued warrants for the pair. Anyone who knows where they are is asked to contact police.
