The Liquor and Gambling Commissioner, Dini Soulio is aware of civil penalty proceedings commenced by AUSTRAC in the Federal Court against the operators of the SkyCity Adelaide Casino.
Mr Soulio said the AUSTRAC investigation has been running in parallel to the investigation underway into SkyCity Adelaide and SkyCity Entertainment Group Limited’s suitability to hold a Casino Licence under the Casino Act.
That investigation, initiated by the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner, is being undertaken by the Honourable Brian Martin AO KC.
“I will now be considering the detail of the AUSTRAC proceedings to determine the next steps, and will be engaging with AUSTRAC, the board of SkyCity and Mr Martin KC.
“As these matters are now before the Federal Court, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
