More unflattering details have been leaked regarding the former British Columbia provincial government’s approach to minimizing money laundering in BC casinos.
In April 2016, BC’s former Liberal government announced with great fanfare the formation of a new Joint Illegal Gaming Investigation Team to combat gang activity and money laundering at the province’s brick-and-mortar casino operations.
The new investigative body was meant to replace the Integrated Illegal Gaming Enforcement Team (IIGET), which was quietly shut down by the Liberals in 2009. Government documents have since revealed that the IIGET was shut down shortly after it expressed interest in probing allegations of money laundering at BC casinos.
