HA Christian Ménard sues Quebec for $ 3m

Sherbrooke Hells Angels member Christian Ménard is claiming $ 3 million from the Attorney General of Quebec, the former Chief Prosecutor of SharQc Madeleine Giauque and informer Sylvain Boulanger .

Accused of first-degree murder and conspiracy for murder during SharQc in 2009, Christian Ménard was released from all charges six years later. He remained "illegally incarcerated for 17 months" and was subjected to "demanding" conditions of release for five years, he said in his lawsuit.
Ménard denounces the "malice" and "blatant disregard" for the protection of his rights. "These breaches of the constitutional disclosure requirements are very serious, malicious, inexcusable and have caused serious damage." He argues he lives a "deep sense of injustice". He claims $ 2m for stress, loss of enjoyment and loss of liberty, as well as $ 1m in punitive damages. He describes himself as a "nationally recognized" fitness coach.

Influential Hells Angel Salvatore Cazzetta kicked off the lawsuits last May by suing authorities for $ 2m. Two weeks later, Daniel Beaulieu, a founder of the Quebec chapter of the Hells Angel filed a similar lawsuit.
