On October 5, 2021, Meng Xi Li was charged at the Vancouver Provincial Court with Forgery (Section 366(1) of the Criminal Code) and Uttering a Forged Document (Section 368(1) of the Criminal Code). An arrest warrant was issued for Li’s arrest, as she is believed to be out of the country.
The alleged offences occurred in January 2016, while Li was employed in a financial institution located in Vancouver. There were no losses of funds linked to the charges.
The Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) investigated the matter and presented findings of misconduct against Li in February 2020, which can be found on their website at https://mfda.ca/case/201935/
This led the Integrated Market Enforcement Team to launch its own criminal investigation into the matter, which culminated in having the current charges being approved by the BC Prosecution Service.
