Money Laundering Probe Collapses Amid Calls for Public Inquiry
All of this led to calls for action, and the Prime Minister even got involved, setting up a task force to deal with the growing money laundering issues in the area. David Eby was appointed to deal with the issue, and he launched an investigation into the problems that continue to dog the area. Despite Eby focusing on trying to fix this problem, it seems that there are a lot of ways in which the situation has become worse.
Whatever the issue, the Crown appears to have discontinued the charges, a process known as ‘stayed.’ Eby expressed consternation and confusion at the decision, stating “I literally read the news that the prosecution had been stayed in the newspaper. I have no idea why this happened.” It is certainly a major setback for the prosecution, who will be given one year to attempt to get the charges reinstated.
