NSW ILGA to Review The Star Sydney Casino Operations
The NSW ILGA has announced a review into the operations of The Star Sydney casino resort.
The Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority has announced a review into the operations of The Star Sydney casino resort. The investigation will look at all key aspects of the operation, including management of bank accounts and AML practices. Investigators will also look into withdrawals from TheStar Sydney’s bank account and the maintenance of transaction receipts.
NSW ILGA will conduct a review into The Star Sydney casino. Adam Bell SC, the lead senior counsel for the Bergin Inquiry, will head up the review. The findings of the investigation are expected to be delivered in January 2022. AUSTRAC is also starting a probe into Star Entertainment over potential due diligence breaches regarding AML measures.
The Star Sydney was investigated by Crown Resorts. It was found not suitable to operate its Sydney casino until changes were put into place. Victoria and Western Australia also investigated Crown. The investigation is similar to the Bergin Inquiry into the suitability of Crown to run a casino in Central Sydney.
