The British Columbia Securities Commission is alleging two sisters committed fraud by misappropriating funds from a joint venture and by transferring shares of the venture to the benefit of their adult children.

The commission says it will seek to set a hearing date June 25 on the allegations against Siu Mui (Debbie) Wong and Siu Kon (Bonnie) Soo.

The allegations, which have not been proven, involve a joint venture with an Alberta company the sisters co-founded called Wheatland Industrial Park Inc.

The regulator claims at least 78 individuals and companies bought $85,000 shares in the venture, for which a prospectus was never issued in British Columbia even though the shares were promoted in that province.

The goal of the venture was to divide a property owned by Wheatland into individual swaths of industrial land, then sell the parcels to bring in money for investors and the company.
