Okada to Meet with Gaming Control Board Over Foreign Payments
The Nevada Gaming Control Board has called in Japanese billionaire tycoon and previous Wynn director Kazuo Okada, along side three other directors of his Universal Entertainment Corp., for a closed-door hearing week that is next. It’s all right part of the Control Board’s ongoing investigation into allegations that $40 million in payments had been designed to Rodolfo Soriano, one of Universal’s casino project consultants within the Philippines. Perhaps the insinuation is that Soriano received the money to grease some Filipino palms, but we would never imply such thing, of course.
We can only report that both the FBI and the Philippines’ comparable, the National Bureau of Investigation, happen having a look to the matter to see if anything improprietous ended up being done. Universal Entertainment has maintained that it acted lawfully in the Philippines; most likely, who doesn’t give their specialists $40 million being a token of their esteem?
Meanwhile, nobody’s commenting: not the Nevada Gaming Control Board and certainly no one from Universal Entertainment. Possibly that’s why they call it money that is hush.
No Wrongdoing Alleged
