The trial of five former employees of the Quebec-based Norbourg trust fund accused of bilking millions of dollars out of unwitting investors ended January 26th. A Quebec superior court judge halted the four-month trial when jurors concluded the case was far too complex for them to reach a unanimous verdict. Walid Hijazi, a lawyer for one of the five accused who faced 700 charges, called the halt in the trial a partial victory. (Norbourg president Vincent Lacroix had been sentenced in October, 2009 to 13 years in jail after pleading guilty to 200 fraud-related charges.)
