UPAC makes arrests for fraud within Quebec Justice Department

Quebec's anti-corruption unit has made more arrests, this time for fraud within Quebec's Justice department.

Charges include fraud, government fraud, and breach of trust, with UPAC saying citizen tips led to the arrests.

UPAC picked up two former members of the Quebec Justice Ministry's IT department and a third man, who worked for IT contractor. 

They're identified as Christian Tessier, Sylvain Tremblay, and Normand Laberge. 

They're accused of taking bribes for contracts awarded by the ministry between 2000 and 2014. 

The three men appeared in court on Thursday after being arrested in the morning.
