Senior SQ officer on leave, working for SNC-Lavalin

A high ranking provincial police officer who led the force's organized crime effort is taking a leave of absence so he can work in the private sector.

Lino Maurizio is on unpaid leave from the force while he works for scandal-plagued SNC-Lavalin, the engineering firm tarnished by allegations of corruption.

He is heading up the company's investigations office.

Maurizio is due to retire from the SQ in a year. His leave until then is raising some eyebrows, but La Presse says the force has taken precautions to prevent conflict of interest, including blocking his access to all police data bases.
