High-roller and luxury compound for VIP gamblers targeted in police probe of alleged fentanyl traffickers
A Global News investigation continues into the links between an Asian criminal network using Canadian casinos and luxury real estate to launder billions from the sale of fentanyl. Sam Cooper reveals exclusive new details about a high-rolling gambler named Tiger Yuan, who was connected to $61 million in suspicious transactions in Canada.
Editor’s note: Mr. Yuan, through legal counsel, states: “Mr. Yuan has no connection to the alleged money laundering or drug transactions. He is aware of no RCMP investigation into his actions, let alone one that he is identified as a top suspect in an RCMP probe of a Chinese drug-importation cartel.” Paul King Jin has filed a defence denying all allegations made by the Civil Forfeiture Office. His statement said Jin has engaged in lawful employment in Canada and that casino chips and money seized from him by police “was acquired lawfully.” Charges against Silver International were stayed in 2018 with Jin’s statement claiming the investigation violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
