Golden Globe not to run Goa off shore casino

The Indian company announced that it would not operate the casino.

India.- The council representing Golden Globe Hotels Private Limited announced that they told the High Court of Bombay that they’re not going to operate the off-shore casino until the next date of hearing, even if the government grants them a license.

Justice Mahesh Sonak informed the court that a license renewal has yet to be issued to the Goa casino run by Golden Globe. The Judge of the Bombay High Court at Goa postponed the matter to November 15.

Social activist Aires Rodrigues had filed a petition to the High Court challenging the decision to renew Kanda’s Golden Globe Hotels Private Limited 2011-2016 expired license. Rodrigues claimed that the off shore casino anchored near the Mandovi river wrongly notified the court that the government had already considered the renewal.

Goa is currently one of cities where casinos are allowed to operate legally. The Indian state is in talks to get another off shore casino, but it is subject to change if the existing operators pay their rest of their dues in fines and their interests. Golden Globe Hotels is among the companies that could get the new floating casino.
