CCAC reminds gaming industry to sidestep elections


The local anti-graft body, the Commission Against Corruption (CCAC), has reiterated that gaming operators must not help promote any given candidate or list of candidates for the upcoming Legislative Assembly elections.
The affirmation comes after a meeting held at the end of May in which the Gaming Co-ordination and Inspection Bureau (DICJ) met with representatives of the six operators and four junket promoters. The chairman of the CCAC noted the oversight body had “given instructions to the operators that the candidate lists, when acquiring signatures on their candidate list, cannot use any influence or threat” to sway their vote or acquire their support.
