Macau authorities have urged city’s casino operators to present a full report on security next week.
Macau.- Casino operators were urged by the government of Macau to present a full report on security systems installed at all local gaming venues next week. After two weeks of concerning terrorist attacks at international levels, both authorities and casino companies are planning a stricter system to prevent any incident.
Last Sunday, the Macau Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau and the Judiciary Police held a meeting with gaming operators to discuss projects to secure safe systems and protocols against terrorist attacks. The meeting followed last week’s shooting at the popular Resorts World Manila resulting in 37 deaths and multiple injured.
After the meeting, Macau’s Secretary for Economy and Finance, Lionel Leong Vai Tac, urged casino companies to contribute to the issue and present their current reports on security structure at their gaming venues, as GGRAsia revealed yesterday. The deadline to submit their reports was set within a week.
After a general assessment, the government of Macau will decide whether current security strategies are enough to prevent incidents in its highly touristic casinos or if operators and authorities must discuss a joint plan to improve the systems. However, the Judiciary Police commented to the local media that the situation is in control and the government has been carrying out several evaluations on casino security plans.
