British Columbia Lottery’s former director admits to ‘whistleblowing’ on huge money laundering
The former anti-money laundering office director at The British Columbia Lottery – Ross Alderson, has admitted to having to do with huge money laundering operations.
After over 4 hours of testifying at the Federal Court of Canada this Thursday, the former director admitted to having contributed to money laundering operations which resulted in several hundreds of millions of dollars in cash flowing across multiple casino establishments in Canada.
At some point during yesterday’s hearing of the Cullen Commission public inquiry into money laundering, Ross Alderson admitted:
“If I didn’t leak that information to media we would not be here today. Yes, I admit to doing that. I had to. Nothing was being done otherwise.”
After being asked about why there had to be a need to ‘manhunt’ the former B.C. Lottery director, implying that he fled the responsibility, Alderson said:
“I wouldn’t exactly say I was trying to hide or run away. I was in Australia, paying my taxes, and being concerned about family affairs.”
Ross Alderson’s testimony is currently continuing today – September 10, 2021, as more details will be available soon.
