An Australian national, facing allegations of large scale money laundering was nabbed by the Western Canada Law enforcement officials. Dan Bui Shun Jin was arrested late last month after facing allegations of laundering millions of dollars through casinos in three continents.
As per an Australian Associated Press report, which was published in the Daily Mail newspaper, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police detailed the person near Vancouver at the popular River Rock Casino Resort on May 25th. The cops got inputs from the counterparts in Australia and the US about his movements.
The 55-year old man is accused of laundering a whopping $653.15 million in the casinos in his homeland. He also allegedly carried out similar acts in both Singapore and Macau. He faces an arrest warrant in the USA as well. That accusation reveals he laundered approximately $1.07 million in Nevada through gambling. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the accused allegedly indulged in international money laundering in many countries.
The Canadian police said the search of his room in British Columbia casino revealed 57,700 in cash. The collected documents also point to the illegal money laundering activities. A new money movement scheme at the Vancouver International Airport was also found. The latter conspiracy also involved a female courier who brought approximately $19,000 in cash and she hailed from Las Vegas. The lady was asked to collect bulk cash from an unknown man in a Las Vegas parking lot. She was asked to reach River Rock Casino alter and deliver it to Jin.
