Enforcement Roundup – September 2017

In this edition of the Enforcement Roundup, we cover one British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) one criminal enforcement case and one panel decision.

BCSC Criminal Enforcement

Frederick Johnathon Nielsen (a.k.a. Fred Nelson and Frederick Gilliliand)

Nielsen pleaded guilty to breaching a BCSC order. He was sentenced in North Vancouver provincial court to six months jail and ordered to pay $10,000 in restitution.

In 2011, the BCSC issued an order against Nielsen that contained several market bans. An investigation by the BCSC’s Criminal Investigations Branch found that Nielsen breached the BCSC order in 2014.

For more on this case, view the Criminal Enforcement page on the BCSC’s public website.

BCSC Panel Decision

CAAS Mining Corporation and Kenneth William Trociuk

A BCSC panel dismissed allegations that Trociuk and CAAS Mining Corporation distributed securities without a prospectus. The panel also dismissed the allegation that Trociuk provided false or misleading information to the BCSC’s Executive Director.
