Fraud trial of ex-Quebec lieutenant-governor Lise Thibault to resume
QUEBEC – The fraud trial of former Quebec lieutenant-governor Lise Thibault will resume Oct. 2.
The date was set in Quebec City Tuesday morning.
Thibault’s trial was interrupted at the beginning of August after she suffered an epileptic seizure.
The 75-year-old is on trial after being charged with fraud and breach of trust in connection with more than $700,000 in alleged improper expenses.
Thibault held the provincial vice-regal post between 1997 and 2007.
Trial judge Carol St-Cyr rejected a defence motion in late July that argued the case should be dismissed because Thibault benefited from royal immunity.
