Las Vegas Sands’ casino in Singapore has hired a law firm to investigate the process through which employees handle patron’s transfers.
Singapore.- Marina Bay Sands has hired a law firm to further investigate the case of client funds erroneously being transferred to other patrons.
In June, Las Vegas Sands’ casino in Singapore settled a legal battle out of court with a Chinese high roller who accused the firm of transferring money from his account to other players without his consent.
The casino returned S$9.1 million (US$6.5 million) to the VIP and allowed him back into its venues.
Marina Bay Sands said then that it thoroughly reviewed the matter and concluded that no patron funds were transferred in a manner contrary to the client’s intent.
Now Bloomberg reports that LVS has hired Davinder Singh Chambers LLC, a legal firm specialising in dispute resolution and international arbitration, to investigate employee transfers of more than $1 billion of customers’ money to third parties.
A previous investigation by another law firm had found irregularities on how casino employees complied with the regulations for such transfers.
