Crown inquiry: Casino group fails money laundering probe.
An inquiry by the New South Wales Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (ILGA) has confirmed allegations that Crown Resorts ignored warnings of money laundering and links between organised crime.
The lengthy inquiry, held under former Supreme Court judge Patricia Bergin, is looking at whether the Melbourne-based casino group should keep its licence to operate its AUS$2.2bn Sydney venue, which is due to open at Barangaroo in December.
The inquiry heard that Crown Resorts never received a ‘gold star’ for anti-money laundering compliance from an independent expert, as claimed by the casino group's former boss John Alexander. Compliance expert Neil Jeans of the anti-money laundering consultancy Initialism told the inquiry that Alexander's comments did not reflect his advice to the company. Instead, Jeans highlighted that while Crown's AML systems satisfied the requirements of Australia's laws, there was room for improvement and no mention of being a gold star customer. Jeans added that he only reviewed the design and structure of Crown's compliance systems, rather than if they worked in practice.
