Strong Anti-Money Laundering Solutions Needed in Wake of the Cullen Report


Reykjavik, Iceland -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2022 -- "Strong and decisive action" is how The Cullen Report described the measures that are now necessary for organizations to combat money laundering on a global level. The author of the report, Commissioner Austin Cullen, said that money laundering is currently flourishing in British Columbia and that steps will need to be taken by every business to ensure that this doesn't continue to be the case. Robust anti-money laundering solutions protect economies and businesses within them - The Cullen Report made it clear that in Canada these measures need to be significantly beefed up. The 1,800+ page document is fairly brutal in its assessment of how serious the problem is and the necessity of implementing anti-money laundering solutions quickly.

Among many of the highlighted issues in The Cullen Report was the fact that British Columbia's horse racing and gambling industries facilitate the laundering of hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Cullen also said that those in the accounting industry often face many more risks when it comes to money laundering and recommended that the regulator do more with respect to anti-money laundering solutions. Other recommendations in the report included tighter controls on casinos, improving the transparency of land ownership records and dissolving the bureaucracy that currently prevents different government agencies from working together on anti-money laundering solutions and monitoring.
