Historic seizure of GHB: the court refuses the withdrawal of the guilty pleas of the three traffickers

The court refused on Wednesday to allow three GHB traffickers allegedly linked to the Hells Angels to withdraw their guilty pleas, even though they had wanted to settle their case quickly, less than a year after their arrest in a historic seizure.

The decision on the motion to withdraw the guilty plea was decided by the judge on Wednesday noon at the Saint-Jérôme courthouse.

Last November, the three accomplices Sébastien Turcotte, 44 years old, Éric Matte, 43 years old, and Jean-Philippe Robitaille, 46 years old, admitted their guilt in a case of large-scale production and trafficking of GHB, nicknamed the drug of rape, in Greater Montreal.

The search which led to their loss had also been described as “the largest seizure of GHB in the history of Quebec” by a specialist in the matter.

According to our sources, the traffickers had links with the Hells Angels.

They will remain detained for further proceedings.
