Crown Resorts’ Perth Casino In Australia Admits To Oversights During during Royal Commission Hearings?
In our first story this week, billionaire James Packer comes under scrutiny for corporate governance failings during his time as an executive at Crown Resorts. On Friday, Packer testified in front of the royal commission about events that took place while he was chairman of Crown’s West Australian subsidiary, Burswood Limited.
At the questioning, the former chairman admitted to not attending the board meeting for four years after moving to live overseas. In addition, Packer failed to make sure that the board had a written charter.
The royal commission is the third in a series of state-based inquiries into dealings of Crown Resorts. The investigations were sparked by a 2019 documentary series, Crown Unmasked, which made allegations of money laundering and criminal activity within the company.
Linn County Gaming Association Discusses Cedar Rapids Casino Proposal?
Next up, the developers at Linn County have a plan in place to build a casino in Cedar Rapids. However, they’ll first have to get a voters’ approval on Tuesday, when county residents will decide on whether to support the public measure “G”. The vote “yes” will allow Cedar Rapids Development Group and their gaming partner Peninsula Pacific Entertainment to initiate their casino project.
The voters have approved similar proposals twice before, in 2014 and 2017. However, both times, the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission, rejected the initiative. Still, the developers remained dedicated to their goal. With a significantly changed gaming market in the state and some new members on the commission, they are hoping that the third time will be the charm.
