article imageMontreal mayor Applebaum resigns amid fraud charges

By E. Hector Corsi     Jun 18, 2013 in Politics
Montreal interim mayor Michael Applebaum has resigned after being arrested on corruption, conspiracy and fraud charges. Applebaum had promised to put the city back on the right path until the next municipal election in November 2013.
Montreal's interim mayor has just resigned after his arrest by UPAC-the Permanent Unit Against Corruption. Mr. Applebaum was questioned by police for nine hours on Monday June 17 and then released.
He said that the charges against him are unfounded and he plans to prove his innocence.
Mr. Applebaum told Montrealers that he has never taken a penny from anybody.
He replaced former mayor Gerald Tremblay, who also resigned last November.
Although he was charged with 14 different crimes, including fraud, he has not yet been convicted of any offence and will use his own money to defend himself, and not city lawyers.
