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.
