OTTAWA — The Prime Minister’s Office says it learned this morning about multiple criminal charges laid against Liberal MP Marwan Tabbara and is “looking into the matter.”

The charges follow Tabbara’s arrest on April 10 in Guelph, Ont.

Tabbara’s office is refusing to comment.

Tabbara, first elected in 2015, is scheduled to appear in court June 19.
