Andrew Yeom, the Commonwealth Casino Commission’s executive director, has revealed that he’s received official calls from two investors.
Northern Mariana Islands.- During an interview with Saipan Tribune, Andrew Yeom has revealed that two New Jersey investors are interested in operating an offline and online casino in Saipan.
Yeom said he could not give more details until the situation of current licensee Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC is clarified. He would not elaborate on whether the investors were interested in buying IPI’s casino complex in Garapan.
At the moment, Saipan has only one exclusive licence. IPI’s licence is currently suspended for failing to pay regulatory fees. The CCC board plans to hold a hearing in May to decide whether the licence should be permanently revoked.
The Supreme Court of the Northern Mariana Islands has rejected an appeal by IPI against the suspension of its licence.
