‘Crown Casino allegations’

First published October 18

The Independent Member for Denison, Andrew Wilkie, will discuss the allegations concerning Crown Casino and the Victorian gambling regulator that he raised this morning (Wed) in the Federation Chamber at approximately 10:12am.

“Today very serious allegations have been levelled at the poker machine industry,” Mr Wilkie said.

“Although the allegations focus on Crown in Melbourne, they could also suggest a broader pattern of behaviour in the poker machine industry which would obviously have grave implications for people right around Australia, including in my electorate of Denison.”

“These allegations are obviously very serious. If Members and Senators, law enforcement and regulatory agencies, and the media, scrutinise the video record of the whistleblowers’ testimony, I’m sure they’ll agree that the claims warrant an immediate and strong response.”

“I call on the Federal and Victorian governments to ensure the allegations are investigated thoroughly. The truth will not be uncovered without a parliamentary inquiry, as well as investigations by law enforcement and regulatory agencies.”

Andrew Wilkie: Liberals join Labor to try and bury Casino allegations … “We now have four whistleblowers and the allegations against Crown are increasing in number. These are serious matters and it beggars belief that neither the Government nor the Opposition have any interest in investigating them,” Mr Wilkie said. “In any case I will at least send these latest allegations to Victoria Police. “But it’s simply not good enough for the Prime Minister to say this is all someone else’s problem. This fourth whistleblower says he fears for his safety and personally pleaded on video for the Prime Minister to order a transparent parliamentary inquiry …

    Mr Wilkie,

    I welcome you exposing this corporate corruption matter.

    Not directly associated with the current player, you may be interested in the onerous employment deed impost required of anyone applying to work for this organisation.

    I have a complete deed which I can send you privately, redacted of course.

    TQ

    One is able to insert cash into a machine/s withdraw lotta $s in an adjacent machine, rather like a washing machine and walk out without any identification.
    Come on Tassie, come on.
