The owner of CNMI’s Rota Resort and Country Club has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the Rota Casino Gaming Commission and its commissioners for unfairly deeming their conditional casino license expired.
Imperial Pacific International Holdings says it’s already accepting advance bookings from China and Japan for its new luxury resort scheduled to open on Saipan at Chinese New Year 2017. The company is counting on the new property to ease capacity restraints and unlock the island’s growth potential.
Saipan casino operator Imperial Pacific International says it will continue to abide by the conditions of its license agreement in regards to imported labor, local media reports.
In a statement to local media, the company said: “[IPI] would continue to follow and meet what is required based on the exclusive casino license agreement. Currently the import labor is at 45 percent.”
The operator also said that gaming is the only division of the company where a large number of employees are foreigners.
