Two members of the Ottawa Police Service have been charged following an investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Anti-Corruption Unit.
The RCMP made the announcement on Thursday evening.
The investigation began several months ago after the Ottawa Police Service asked the RCMP for help in investigating the breach of trust.
Two more have been indicted following further investigation into the alleged crimes committed by the four accused: Ontarian Constables Haider El Badri, 29, and Mohamed Mohammed, 45, have been charged with obstruction of justice.
El Badri has been charged by a public official with breach of trust and inciting the processing of a forged document, while Ashley El Batry, 29, of Ottawa, has been charged with fraud and incitement to process forged documents.
Mohamed Saleme (29), originally from Katino in Ooty, was charged with processing false documents.
The accused will appear in Ottawa court on September 1, 2 and 3.
