RCMP hunting for Liberal Party fraudster

Former Grit candidate Emmanuel Feuerwerker bilked feds for more than $600,000

A former federal Liberal candidate convicted of defrauding the government remains on the lam after ducking a sentencing hearing in July. Emmanuel Feuerwerker served as a House of Commons clerk in the 1980s and later ran for the Liberals in Etobicoke. Feuerwerker and his wife were convicted of fraud over $5,000 after they billed the government for more than $600,000 for 102 phantom physiotherapy appointments between 2002 and 2005. Feuerwerker is now listed as wanted on the RCMP’s website.
