Terrorist financing cases not prosecuted: Senator


Terrorist financing cases not prosecuted: Senator | Canada | News | Toronto Sun

OPP, TPS. RCMP. All operate with one eye on their budgets and one eye on “low hanging fruit”. It would take too much effort and honest investigative work to track down this funding. Which country do you think is at the most risk when such funding of terrorism activities is successful?

Senator Daniel Lang, who led a National Security and Defence Committee study into the terrorism threat in Canada, said police and justice officials have received almost 700 reliable reports of suspected terrorist financing in the country during recent years.

“And that information, the way I understand it, was brought to the attention of the RCMP, and we have had I believe one charge since 2001,” Lang said. “The question that has to be asked is if we have the information, and credible information obviously, there is terrorist financing going on in this country … why aren’t there any charges brought forward?”


The same reason we do not prosecute— corruption


Ironic that you state that, considering America is number one in this regard. Canada, dead last in G7… When you consider that Canada doesn’t enforce white collar crimes, doesn’t go after funding for terrorist groups hellbent on slaughtering innocent civilians, we have a bloated $1B+ budget for the TPS, chief of police making $350k a year, the OPP that has openly called for election of a corrupt and criminal Provincial Liberal Party of Ontario. Just was is it that the covert security apparatus in Canada does? “Digging holes and filling them” is a proper way of describing their activities.

Since the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials Act became law 13 years ago in Canada, a small fine against an Alberta company in 2005 has been the only conviction ever recorded. A trial set to start this August against an Ottawa man accused of bribery in India would be only the **second time a charge **has been laid under the act.

By contrast, the United States has prosecuted more than 200 companies and individuals, many of them “a veritable who’s who of the corporate world,” according to Peter Dent, a partner at Deloitte and Touche, LLP who also sits on the board of Transparency International.

“It is naive to think that you cross that 49th parallel and somehow we’re pure as the driven snow,” he said. “Canada does not have a great reputation when it comes to the enforcement of white-collar crime. If it’s not taken seriously by government, it won’t be taken seriously by the corporate sector.”
