A Montreal judge has rejected requests by two of the accused at the Contrecoeur fraud trial to have the charges against them dismissed for lack of evidence.

The prosecution was able to submit sufficient evidence against Pasquale Fedele and Pascal Patrice to justify rejecting their motions to dismiss the charges, Court of Quebec Judge Yvan Poulin ruled on Friday.

“Without ruling on the reliability or the probative value of (the evidence), or on (its) sufficiency to prove the ultimate guilt of the applicants, the court is of the opinion that the applicable threshold has been reached” to reject the motions, Poulin said in a 10-page ruling he read aloud at the Montreal courthouse.
