Victoria’s Gambling regulator has said that they are to finish their review of the allegations of money laundering and mafia connections against country’s top gambling and casino operator Crown Resorts in two weeks time.
Victoria’s gambling minister Marlene Kairouz has ordered the c to re-examine allegations that have surfaced in the media reports.
Talking to ABC radio, commission chief executive Catherine Myers said: “We’re committed to getting back to the minister within the next two to three weeks.”
“If we need further time because we’ve uncovered evidence or facts that we need to further investigate, then I’ll notify the minister of that.
“If there’s no new evidence or facts then there may not be any further action for the Victorian regulator to take.”
State’s gambling minister has urged the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation to again look into the allegations of regulatory arrangements of junket operators.
Earlier this week, the Australian government ordered a probe into the fast track visa approvals of the Chinese High-rollers visiting the country’s largest casino operator, the Crown Resorts’, luxury casino resorts.
However, denying the allegations of money laundering and their involvement in facilitating fast-track visas for VIP Chinese guests at their gambling facilities, the casino giant said that they are facing a “deceitful campaign.”
