BC's former Solicitor General is being put back on the stand at the Cullen Commission

Rich Coleman is set to become the final witness at BC's money laundering inquiry

Coleman is being brought back to 'address an additional area of evidence'

VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) — Testimony at B.C.’s money laundering inquiry is slated to wrap up on May 14, with the former Solicitor General getting recalled as the last witness.

Rich Coleman was in charge of gaming for several years between 2001 and 2017 under the B.C. Liberal government. And last week, Coleman testified tracking dirty money in casinos was not a priority under his watch because he was more focused on stopping loan sharks.

Several other witnesses previously testified he turned a blind eye to evidence of the crime.
