Mihale Leventis, 40, is awaiting a trial on five charges related to 2012's Operation Loquace
|Mihale Leventis, 40, is waiting for a trial on cocaine trafficking in Quebec, during which an informant working for the police handled more than 500 kilograms of cocaine and $14 million. The police seized more than 100 kilograms of cocaine. The ring brought 75 kilos of cocaine to Canada every week.|
More than 100 arrests were made in Operation Loquace, on Nov. 1, 2012, with the SQ alleging Leventis was one of six men who formed a consortium that organized the distribution of the cocaine. The network had ties to the Hells Angels and the West End Gang.
At least 67 people out of 90 charged have been convicted in the case. Leventis recently filed a Jordan motion arguing the charges against him should be stayed because he has waited too long for his trial.
|Pieces of Frederic Lavoie, 31, were found on May 12, 2014 in the town of Sabaneta, 300 km northwest of Bogota. His remains were found on a street inside four garbage bags that were leaking blood.|
Lavoie's accomplice, Timoleon Psiharis, 29, was tortured, doused with acid and beaten to death in Greece in 2012. Psiharis's bound body was found in a ditch.
