AAP logoAAP 27/07/2016

A Brisbane man has been charged with money laundering offences for allegedly running a cold-call investment scam.

He is the 14th person charged during Operation Lima Violin II, a joint Queensland Police and Crime and Corruption Commission investigation.

The man was a director of a company called Tropical Plant, which purported to buy and sell shares.

The investigation will allege that the company never purchased shares, and the man withdrew cash from the company's bank account and gave it to others.

He is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on August 16.
