Armitage allowed to leave country pending trial

A British man accused in connection with corrupt contracting for the MUHC superhospital has secured the court's permission to return home while he awaits trial.

St. Clair Martin Armitage made bail yesterday, agreeing to post a $75,000 dollar bond.

After Interpol issued a Red Notice on him based on Quebec's arrest warrant, he returned to Canada this week to be arraigned on fraud and abuse of trust charges.

He informed UPAC investigators ahead of time and they met him upon arrival at Trudeau Airport.

Armitage is an expert in public-private partnerships in health care.

In a news release, he professed his innocence and said he would vigorously defend himself against the corruption charges.
