JAMES PACKER CALLS WILKIE A 'LIAR' OVER POKIES TAMPERING ALLEGATIONS
Written on the 26 October 2017 by Ben Hall
CASINOS operator Crown Resorts (ASX: CWN) has accused independent MP Andrew Wilkie of making "outrageous and unfounded" allegations about poker machine tampering and money laundering at its Melbourne Crown Casino.
"That forced the Crown directors' hand in a large degree in relation to Macau," Packer says.
Crown began selling its interests in its joint-venture casinos in Macau in December 2016, two months after the first detention of the company's employees in China.
