UPDATE: Arrest made in kidnapping of Chez Cora president
The Sûreté du Québec confirm they have arrested one person and expect to make more arrests in connection with the kidnapping in March of last year of the president of the Chez Cora restaurant chain.
A police spokesman says the arrest was made in Laval this morning.
The suspect will face charges of kidnapping and sequestration and is expected in court tomorrow.
44-year-old Nicholas Tsouflidis, was kidnapped from his home in Mirabel, and was found about eight hours later tied up in a ditch in Laval.
In a statement, Tsouflidis said that the last year was challenging and that it was a relief to learn about the arrest of a suspect.
"It seems to be a unique and isolated case. At Chez Cora, it's zero tolerance when it comes to violence," said Tsouflidis, who said he has confidence in the justice system to shed light on the situation and that he will collaborate with authorities.
