Hells Angel paid £1.75million for turning supergrass

Self-confessed murderer granted record payout by Canadian officials

AUTHORITIES IN Quebec have paid a record £1.75 million to a ex-member of the Hells Angels for giving information on the criminal activities of his former chapter.

Sylvain Boulanger was also granted immunity from prosecution, despite admitting to Police that he'd actually murdered someone himself. His defection from the notorious biker gang led to more than 150 arrests during Operation SharQc in 2009.

The three-year operation saw Boulanger, an Angels member for over 20 years, spill the beans over murders, attempted murders and other crimes committed by his former associates.

Boulanger openly described to Police how he had murdered someone:

"The door was open, I come up on the side and I shoot. I hear 'Ow! Ow! Ow!' I see him there and in my head, he's dead. So I get out of there running," he told police in a videotaped conversation obtained by Radio-Canada.

Boulanger initially asked for over £5 million but the request was turned down.
