M. Bekier explained the problems in the international department, specifically China Union Pay debit card scheme, as well as its assessment of the problems of “junket” operators in its exclusive gaming room “Salon 95”.
It was obvious that M. Bekier felt like he was “let down by managers”.
In the words of M. Bekier the board would have helped him to close the business, if they had known everything.
Later he added that:
“It seemed like a bit of a dark art. We did not challenge them, I did not challenge them․ The company is run very differently from attracting customers and bringing them to Star Casino before entertaining them and raising money.”
The investigation, aided by reports of a group suspected of several crimes like money laundering and foreign interference.
