The British Columbia region is witnessing fresh developments in casino related money laundering every now and then. The province has been plagued by the menace for a few years now. Things seem to be getting worse progressively. It is apparent that criminal gangs have been using British Columbia casinos for their illegal activities.
This has led to negative press and that has tarnished image and success of the local casinos to an extent. Some have even started doubting future of the industry. The money laundering scam got so blown out of proportion even the Prime minister had to step in. He had set up a special task force.
The investigation has resulted in the creation of more questions than answers. A number of unexpected revelations have taken place too. Allegations of the former MPs being involved in money laundering have surfaced and links of Asian crime syndicates with Canadian politicians have been heard too. Claims have been made that some casino owners are aware of the underground activities occurring in the BC casinos.
The truth is yet to be ascertained, but the deep-rooted problems the case has stirred up seems unfathomable. A new probe is on to find out if more casino staff in B.C may be involved in this menace.
David Eby, the famous B.C. Attorney General is keen on unveiling the truth and he says it looks like a deep-rooted nexus. The revelations that will come up can be even more shocking, he thinks. He is apprehensive the extent of money laundering taking place in the province can run into billions of dollars!
However, the public view is that Eby and his team are successful in tracing the root of the menace and eliminates it for good. The case may be more complex, but at least some actions are now being taken.
