The police in British Columbia have arrested nine members of the criminal organization on suspicion of money laundering in illegal casinos belonging to the same criminal structure.
Law enforcers initiated an investigation in May 2016, when it became known that members of a criminal organization helped drug dealers launder money through illegal casinos, and were also actively involved in mafia-like usury, kidnapping and extortion.
During the investigation, a total of four illegal gambling establishments belonging to the group were identified, as well as links between criminal organizations and the criminal structures of mainland China.
The police have not yet made official charges against any of the detainees, but are preparing charges of money laundering, drug trafficking and illicit proceeds. According to the police, the investigation is still ongoing. In the next few days law enforcers will conduct further arrests on this case.
