B.C. doesn’t have a single federal RCMP officer dedicated to investigating money laundering, according to the latest provincial report on the issue.

Peter German, a former Mountie, was asked to look into why so few money laundering cases have been prosecuted in B.C., despite allegations that the practice is widespread in the province.

German says the only RCMP resources dedicated to money laundering in B.C. are provincially funded or operating under the provincial policing agreement. His latest revelation was made public Monday morning.

“We have accelerated the release of this portion of the report so that the federal government and the public are aware of what is happening to police the international crime groups laundering money through our provincial economy,” Attorney General David Eby said in a news release.

“What is happening is nothing.”
