Informant: Mob used Hells Angels as enforcers

Documents obtained by several media outlets show that the Hammer Squad believes the Mafia used members of the Hells Angels as enforcers as it sought to control bidding on City of Montreal contracts.

An informant told the squad that bidding was by the Mafia's invitation only, and members of the Hells Angels visited business owners unwilling to go along with the scheme.

The source says by Mafia order, bidding was inflated by 10-percent, with half of that money being kicked back to the Mob.

Testimony from the same source was used by anti-corruption investigators to obtain a warrant against former Montreal executive committee chair, Frank Zampino.
