The Cullen Commission is an official body in Vancouver, British Columbia, inquiring into the need to enact legislation enhancing the province’s criminal money laundering statutes and related asset forfeiture laws. In 2021, I submitted a written report to the Commission along with sworn testimony summarizing the money laundering and asset forfeiture laws in the United States. The purpose was to aid the Commission in deciding what changes to make to the law in British Columbia.
The Commission has now isssued it Final Report in Part XII of which it recommends numerous changes to the money laundering laws in British Columbia and the enhanced use of both criminal and civil forfeiture. The following is a link to that section of the Final Report.
