Jimei’s Executive Director quits

174

Junket operator Jimei International Entertainment Group Ltd. announced the resignation of its Executive Director, Ng Kuen Hon, according to a company filing with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on Monday evening.
Previously, Mr. Ng was also responsible for two Philippine gaming operations of the company’s founder, Jack Lam – the Clark Resort Travel and Amusement Corporation and at the Fontana Leisure Parks and Casino in Clark Freeport.
The filing stated that the resignation is due to Mr. Ng’s ‘other business engagements which require more of his attention and dedication.’
No replacement for Mr. Ng has been announced.
Last month, Kennis Wong Kwok Leung also stepped down from his positions as the group’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, citing the same reasons as Mr. Ng.
In 2016, an arrest warrant was issued by Philippines authorities for the Jimei founder for allegedly bribing Bureau of Immigration officials in order to release more than 1,300 Chinese nationals who were working illegally at his operation in Clark.
