A Toronto man has been charged with fraud and other breaches of securities law, the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) announced on Monday.
The OSC reports that Evgueni Ivonov Todorov has been charged with one count each of fraud, unregistered trading, trading with a prospectus and trading while prohibited. On March 6, 2015, the OSC permanently banned Todorov from trading after a regulatory hearing panel found that he committed several securities law violations in connection with a foreign exchange trading scheme.
Earlier this year, a regulatory hearing panel issued another permanent ban against Todorov, along with other sanctions, after finding that he masterminded another foreign-ex changetrading scheme from November 2010 to June 2013.
The latest allegations against him have not been proven. The OSC indicates that the new charges stem from a six-month investigation by the OSC’s Joint Serious Offences Team (JSOT), an enforcement partnership with the RCMP and the OPP.
Todorov is scheduled to appear in court to answer the latest charges on June 7 before the Ontario Court of Justice in Toronto.
