1. The German report today will be interesting, it won't name names, I doubt it will give an idea of the believed ML scale or known Big Circle Boys or linked tycoons involved in #vanre development ... but if it quotes from police officers similarly to this in the car laundering,
2. 'Noted one police investigator quoted in the report: The well-known gangster “wouldn’t be able to get a liquor or casino licence, but he can own a car dealership.” ... then it will have observations from the same expert officers, who know that the same high-level gangsters
3. own guns shops, gyms, resource companies (oil, jade, water) and most importantly real estate development firms, some large and apparently legit, some just doing mini condos and land assembly plays ... bare trusts, numbered cos, etc.
4. I know Dr. German spoke to the same experts I did, people that generally have the view, that casino ML is a big deal, but tiny in comparison to the scale of real estate money laundering in BC.
5. And if you turn over the rocks and name names, police are well aware of who the players are, who their realtors and lawyers and bankers are. When they raid gangsters or execute search warrants, police collect business cards and transaction records, along with drugs, guns etc.
6. Police don't seem to do very much with this intel, or haven't so far. But they have it. This is an area the German report will never go, but a public inquiry such as Quebec's would test the importance of those connections in the public's interest. Regardless, I'm working on it
7. Another interesting thing I'd hope to see in the German report, that stemmed from this story originally ... vancouversun.com/news/local-new… ... Blocking mortgages. In these chains of loan shark real estate loans, allegedly are fake mortgages taken against #vanre to block lower ranked
8. mortgages, or potentially usurp mortgages from 'legit' MICs or banks at the top of the chain. This expensive fraudulent use of BC Courts is costing taxpayer money, as gangsters use Canada's court system to launder money ...
9. And as #vanre falls the equity in these homes used as money laundering vehicles will go down, and one could expect these court battles to get more drawn out and expensive. Lawyers will have lots of work though.
10. What the lawyers are claiming, is that the loan sharks will hire someone to make fraudulent mortgage claims, fake promissory notes, etc, in these private lender chain legal disputes. Let's see if Peter German takes a look at this.
11. The closed source and public record connections between illegal casinos, offshore banking, BCLC casinos, #vanre development, Lamborghini driving-princelings fronting for offshore narco kingpins. It's all waiting to be unpacked in a public inquiry globalnews.ca/news/4658157/f… end.
