Chinese gangster Kwok Chung Tam loves Canadian legal system

High rollers with known connections to loan sharks deposited vast sums of cash at B.C. casinos and were allowed to regularly 'bend' anti-money laundering laws up until 2015. A BCLC casino investigator said, “It was clear to us there was only one major criminal organization working the casino VIP rooms." It's leader was convicted drug trafficker Kwok Chung Tam, 62.

He is described by police as the boss of Paul King Jin and his underground bank Silver International. Despite being subject to deportation as early as 2000 the gangster is said to still be living in Canada.

Tam made headlines in 2019 when former and now disgraced Liberal MP Joe Peschisolido’s law firm set up a “bare trust” joint venture with a company directed by Kwok Chung Tam. Tam used that instrument to mask his direct involvement in the acquisition of a 3.7-acre condo project in Coquitlam. The purchase was valued at $7.75m. It was later sold for $14.8m with the law firm helping launder the money.

It was found Peschisolido repeatedly broke the code of conduct for MPs, but since he lost re-election there was no punishment.

The Big Circle Boys dominate the trade of fentanyl importation and trafficking in Canada. Tam has lived in Canada for over 30 years, with immigration trying to deport him for decades. Files stretching to 1988 outline three decades of criminal activity and Tam’s connections to organized crime.

Tam arrived at Vancouver International Airport on Dec. 5, 1988. Tam made a refugee claim, saying he feared persecution. He claimed he would face “severe punishment” from the Chinese government because of his support of pro-democracy student protests.
Court files show cops were investigating Tam for links to organized crime and heroin trafficking as early as 1990. He lead a home invasion and robbery team. In June 1996 his refugee claim was finally rejected. He appealed. A police raid in 1998 found weapons, ammunition and raw heroin. The charges were eventually dropped after an unacceptable court delay. The charges also held up Tam's deportation. Tam was also charged with conspiracy to import and traffic heroin in 1999. Tam was acquitted of these charges in 2002 after wiretap evidence was tossed.

In December 2004, a full 6 months after he was to be deported, Tam received 'stage one' approval to remain in Canada on “humanitarian and compassionate” grounds.
After the 2004 immigration decision, investigations into Tam’s criminal activities continued. Tam was charged with various drug trafficking and possession charges and in 2010 was convicted of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. He was given a 15-month conditional sentence, which included house arrest and a weapons ban. Throughout the process Tam was again prevented from being deported. In December 2015, following the negative immigration decision from a month earlier, Tam’s lawyer submitted an appeal to the federal court. There is still no date set for Tam's removal.
