The same Chinese junket operator SunCity that has applied to Murrindindi Shire to build a hotel, function room and accomodation in Murrindindi has been caught with bags of cash at Crown Casino.
This morning ABC video footage (showing Crown Casino CCTV) emerged of an unknown man unloading large sums of cash from a cooler bag in a room at Crown reserved for clients of the Chinese junket operator.
The ABC also aired claims from an unnamed insider who said foreign high-rollers often flew to Australia on private jets, avoiding customs inspections, and exchanging huge amounts of cash with no trace.
Crown strongly denies the latest allegations.Advertisement
Premier Dan Andrews today told Nick McKenzie at The Age:
“Allegations have been made, they’re very serious and they’re being investigated by the VCGLR and other relevant bodies and it’s important work and they’ll have findings and a report to produce,” the Premier said.
SunCity’s Mr Tom “Mr Chinatown” Zhou and Murrindindi Shire councillors continue refusing to answer questions from Kinglake Ranges News.

Concerned Murrindindi Shire residents will hold a public meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, 16 October at The Murrindindi Hub, 815 Murrindindi Rd, Murrindindi. (Next to the CFA).Advertisement
