In view of the information disclosed by Radio-Canada about Neptune, we will take appropriate measures according to the resources granted to us under the provisions of the Security Privacy Act and the law. The BSP will do this very carefully to protect the public, which is its fundamental mission, said Claudius Paul-Hus, Director General of the BSP.
On Thursday, Quebec ordered BSP Neptune to carry out due diligence based on revelations revealed by Radio-Canada about the private security company.
Among other things, it was not only revealed that Neptune allegedly did not pay workers and provided little training, but that the leader Robert Butler was alleged to have declared two different identities for the circumstances.
Robert Butler, who is also known as Badreddine Ahmadoun, denies being Neptune’s CEO, although he swore before the Superior Court of Quebec that he would represent the company’s CEO in 2019 and 2020.
Neptune has been awarded $200 million in contracts in Quebec alone and its services are in demand across the country.
In addition, the company’s genealogy office is not listed at the correct address. In fact, he now leads the UPS office in Ontario.
A Radio Canada article on Friday morning revealed that the experience of Neptune’s employees and the organizers who hired its services proved to be very difficult.
