Outaouais Other accusations target a conspirator


The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are interested in the violent comments against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made by Raymond Têtu, arrested for possession of machine guns, other prohibited weapons, cocaine and counterfeit money.

After two searches by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) on January 20 in Val-des-Monts and Gatineau, the prosecution has already laid nine charges against him. But there would be more.

“I can confirm that the RCMP seized other evidence during the searches last Wednesday, writes Corporal Mélanie Cappiello-Stébenne in an email to our Investigation Office. Other charges could be laid. The investigation is continuing. “

The federal police provided this response after our questions about the violent messages that Têtu, 51, posted on social media. They target in particular the Liberal government, Parliament and Justin Trudeau, whose protection the RCMP must ensure.

Last September on Twitter, for example, he threatened to attack the Prime Minister and his family.

In April, he declared in English that Trudeau should be “slaughtered like a sick animal”.

The RCMP say they are well aware of these harsh comments.

“We are on the spot,” said Mélanie Cappiello-Stébenne. From there to knowing if there will be charges, we must continue to assess the evidence. “

Armed to the teeth

The RCMP Federal and Airport Investigations Detachment had been on its trail since the interception of a package containing gun silencers, also seized.

Police also went to another property belonging to Têtu’s father, rue Drapeau in Gatineau, where they got their hands on 16 other weapons.

Since a conviction for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking in 2012, the accused was under an order prohibiting him from possessing any firearm.
