The Attorney General of British Columbia David Eby has appointed current ICCLR President Dr. Peter German as an independent expert to conduct a review of British Columbia’s anti-money-laundering policies and practices in the gambling industry, with a focus on the Lower Mainland. Attorney General Eby has asked Dr. German to determine whether there is an unaddressed, or inadequately addressed, issue of money laundering in Lower Mainland casinos, and the history, nature and extent of any issues he identifies. He has also been asked to make recommendations, if necessary, for reform. The review is currently scheduled to be complete by the end of March 2018.

ICCLR is pleased to share an update to the report “Corruption in Canada: Reviewing Practices from Abroad to Improve our Response”. Initially prepared by ICCLR Senior Associate Eileen Skinnider in March 2012, this report is an updated version prepared by Professor Gerry Ferguson, also a Senior Associate of the Centre. The report addresses questions such as:
How does the Canadian legal framework and its enforcement fare in comparison with laws, policies and enforcement elsewhere?
What can we learn from other countries to improve our own legal response?
The International Centre for Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice Policy is pleased to share an English translated version of Volume three of the Commission of Inquiry on the Awarding and Management of Public Contracts in the Construction Industry– also known as the Charbonneau Report. This volume is on “Schemes, Causes, Consequences and Recommendations”.
The full report was prepared and presented initially in French only after a lengthy inquiry into systemic corruption occurring within Quebec’s construction industry.
