IIROC announces discipline and penalty against Jamie Seong Il Park

TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ - A Hearing Panel of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) has imposed a permanent ban from registration in any capacity with an IIROC-regulated firm on James Seong Il Park for failing to cooperate in an IIROC investigation.

The penalty also includes a $25,000 fine and a requirement for Mr. Park to pay costs of $15,000. The panel's Decision and Reasons are available on the IIROC website.

The panel found that Mr. Park refused and/or failed to attend at an interview and give information as part of an IIROC investigation into his conduct, contrary to IIROC Rule 19.5.

IIROC began the investigation into Mr. Park's conduct in April 2009 after being alerted to the matter as the result of an internal investigation by his member firm.  The violation of Rule 19.5 occurred when Mr. Park was a former Registered Representative with a Toronto branch of TD Waterhouse Inc.  He is no longer registered with an IIROC-regulated firm.
