Hong Kong Entertainment (Overseas) Investments Ltd., owner of Tinian Dynasty Hotel and Casino is to forfeit $2.5 million for failing to document over $138 million in reportable cash transactions, Marianas Variety reports.
Hong Kong-listed Imperial Pacific International Holdings has announced its temporary casino on Saipan has generated VIP rolling of US$2.3 billion in January, according to a recent filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona Manglona has dismissed with prejudice the charges against former Tinian Dynasty’s casino VIP services manager George Que, according to local media.
Dismissed with prejudice means the U.S. government is not allowed to re-file the same case in the future. Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell Lorfing said the motion to dismiss was made in good faith, primarily based on the deferred-prosecution agreement of the parties.
Attorney General Edward Manibusan has said under the Tinian Casino Gaming Act, the Tinian Casino Gaming Control Commission cannot collect any special fees described in NMIAC Section 170-30.2-825 or the “Special Fee Assessments for General Operations of the Commission”.
