One of the brothers planning to reopen the controversial Doc’s Palace strip club in Belleville is the subject of a lengthy arrest warrant in Montreal. Our newsroom has recieved a copy of the warrant for Robert Moniz which alleges he defrauded financial insitutions in a mortgage scam, dating back to 2003, that could reach 200-million dollars. The Montreal courts tell our newsroom Moniz is still wanted on those charges. E-mailed copies of the warrant were sent to city councillors and the local media but Moniz says this is nothing more than “jealousy” from a former business partner’s ex-wife. Moniz tells today’s Intell the warrant is authentic but stresses he is “innocent” of the charges. He believes the documents may have played a role in council’s decision at this week’s meeting to request a bylaw be drafted eliminating the Station Street property as an adult establishment site.
