Anti-Money Laundering Specialists come to Vancouver
Front page of today’s Vancouver Province is about a former RCMP investigator coming to Vancouver to create a local chapter of the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists. Three cheers. After Rich Coleman and the BC Liberals shut down the investigation of money laundering in BC Casinos here comes a private company to fill the gap.
When we first hear the term P3, public private partnership, we automatically think of Gordon Campbell’s corruption. Yet this could be different. Any exposure investigating money laundering is a good thing. Not only is it immoral but it’s always tied to investment fraud that crashes banks and destroys pension.
The question is, will this private company who has no interest in RCMP contracts with the Province, reopen the money laundering investigations in the BC Rail case that were swept under the carpet? Aneal Basi was accused of money laundering from Erik Bornmann. Tips from an informant suggested Basi was laundering money for Bains by purchasing real estate. I’d like to see these guy investigate that. As well as the money laundering that goes on in the banks. Or how about money laundering in stocks? That should keep them pretty busy.
