Informant favours jail over contact with cops

A biker who became an informant for the Montreal police says he is so worried about reports of corruption within the force's organized crime division that he fears for his life - and would prefer to go back to jail rather that remain free with his whereabouts tracked by investigators.

44-year old Sylvain Beaudry was a member of the Banditos. He has been in witness protection since 2004.

Against the rules, he gave an interview to La Presse, explaining that he is worried a corrupt police officer approaching retirement might sell information about him to the enemies he made in biker circles.

    Even police informants don't trust the SPVM.
    It says a lot about the poor quality of our expensive police force.
