Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP
National Intake Office
P.O. Box 1722, Station B
Ottawa, ON K1P 0B3
Reference: RCMP Case No. 2015-25-795, filed Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Constable Fred Arnold
Inspector Brent Mundle
Inspector Nick Romanchuk
Deputy Commissioner “K” Division
NOTE: The above-indicated individuals never responded to our emails and letters.
To whom it may concern,
In June 2015 we filed criminal charges against the BC Securities Commission with the Kelowna Detachment, we submitted information and evidence in regards to some Commission employees that committed criminal offenses in the course of investigating U-GO Brands and its Directors for Securities Violations. In fact, this past October 2015, the Commission dismissed its Director of Investigations, Ms. Teresa Mitchell-Banks, also, Ms. Mila Pivnenko, the lead investigator in the U-GO Brands case has been on leave since December 2015.
Sometime in August 2015, Constable Fred Arnold of the Kelowna Detachment mentioned that he was submitting our file to the Kelowna Crown for review and consideration. After several months of writing to the above individuals, we received a letter dated March 8, 2016, from Staff Sergeant Peter Ormshaw, Commanding Officer “K” Division advising us that our complaint is civil and not criminal.
What has us concerned is that we visited the Kelowna Crown office this Monday, June 20, 2016, requesting to meet with the assigned Crown Attorney to our case file. To our surprise, the Kelowna Crown office has no record or file number about our criminal complaint. We can only assume that the Kelowna Detachment never investigated our criminal complaint and never submitted our file to the Kelowna Crown office.
Also, we found it very strange that as plaintiffs, none of the U-GO Brands Directors were ever contacted by an RCMP investigator to verify and confirm our criminal allegations against the BC Securities Commission.
For your convenience, we are enclosing several letters that will provide you with a clear insight about our complaints. Please note that we can provide you with hard evidence that proves our allegations against certain Commission employees.
We await your comments and recommendations.
