Former MUHC official investigated for fraud
A former high-ranking official at the MUHC is reportedly the subject of a fraud investigation by the SQ.

The suspicion is Stella Lopreste allegedly defrauded the MUHC of as much as 1.6 million dollars.
A Radio-Canada report says she allegedly used MUHC money to purchase personal items, such as clothes, restaurant meals, flower deliveries, trips, computers and cellphones...and had ordered staff to falsify bills to cover it up.
The MUHC says it's collaborating with the investigation but admitted to refusing to hand over documents is says are "personal and confidential." The hospital told CJAD in a statement the SQ will asking the courts to get the health centre to hand over the files.
