The Montreal police department has opened an internal investigation into a company that supplied a dozen limousines for the recent funeral of reputed mob boss Vito Rizzuto.
The company is owned by a former police officer, Marcel Auger and his two sons, Stephane who is a lieutenant-detective in the organized crime division and Daniel, a civilian employee.
The senior Auger says his company does business with dozens of funeral homes and doesn't check who's being buried.
By law, a police officer has to declare his holdings in outside business interests every yearand the Journal de Montreal says that Stephane Auger complies with the requirement.
Marcel Auger says his company supplied a dozen cars, drivers and pallbearers for the Rizzuto funeral.
