Liberal MP says he has no knowledge of ‘bare trust’ real estate deal facilitated for alleged ‘drug boss’

Liberal MP Joe Peschisolido says he has no knowledge of and had no involvement in a secretive “bare trust” real estate deal facilitated by a lawyer at his law firm in 2011. The deal involved a convicted drug trafficker and alleged kingpin of the Mainland China-based crime cartel the Big Circle Boys, Kwok Chung Tam. Tam has denied any involvement in organized crime and gangs. His lawyer says claims of organized crime have never been proven in court.
