Revenue Canada, RBC Securities and Liechtenstein

December 14, 2009

Court documents say RBC employees in Victoria helped Canadians transfer assets to the banking haven of Liechtenstein.
Those funds remained hidden until Revenue Canada was tipped off.
Greg Rasmussen will have a report on the crack in banking secrecy which led investigators to the offices of R-B-C Dominion Securities in Victoria.
