In a case that reads like a mystery novel and leaves a number of key questions unanswered, a court has found a Toronto lawyer and two co-accused guilty in a nearly $2-million fraud of the Royal Bank of Canada to purchase unique gold bars. Where those bars are now remains a mystery, but Ontario Superior Court Justice Alfred O’Marra ruled Sept. 8 that Remy Boghossian, a corporate-commercial lawyer and sole practitioner at Boghossian Legal PC on Don Mills Rd., along with Raffi Ebrekdjian, and Siva Suthakaran were guilty of defrauding the bank of an amount in excess of $5,000. He further found Boghossian and Ebrekdjian guilty of possessing gold bars knowing the property was obtained by the commission of an indictable offence.
