Indian-origin man in Canada admits to stealing $47 Million.


An Indian-origin former Ontario government employee has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to stealing 47.4 million dollars from the Canadian provincial government also including USD 10.8 million of COVID aid.
Sanjay Madan, who served as an IT director within the Ministry of Education, agreed that he “abused his position to defraud the Ontario government” by overseeing two complicated schemes to bilk millions of dollars from taxpayers.
As part of the guilty plea, Madan agreed to re-pay the entire 47 million dollars, 30 million dollars of which, his lawyers say, was immediately returned to the Ontario government, while the remainder can be repaid over the next 15 years.
