Sheldon Adelson has spent millions purchasing US politicians, plus the public has a right to know where that money originated from, argue two motions filed in a Las Vegas court.
A Las Vegas judge has been asked to disclose the articles of a report compiled within the wrongful termination lawsuit brought against the Las Vegas Sands by its former employee, Mark Jacobs.
‘The Vickers Report,’ published by Steve Vickers, former head of the Royal Hong Kong Police’s Criminal Intelligence Bureau, may or not include evidence that is damning Sheldon Adelson’s LVS had company transactions because of the Hong Kong Triads as part of its operations in Macau.
Either way, two organizations, the UK’s Guardian newspaper and watchdog that is non-profit Campaign for Accountability (CFO), need to know about it, and now have filed split motions to that effect.
Jacobs, the president that is former CEO of Sands China, claims he was fired for ‘whistleblowing on improprieties,’ while Adelson claims Jacobs has made such allegations so as to blackmail LVS.
Meanwhile, it’s common knowledge that triads have infiltrated the VIP junket operations from where Macau casinos derive a large portion of their income, but did LVS wittingly have business ties to organized crime?

A report presented last week by Ile de France prefect Jean-Pierre Duport concluded that the Vegas-style venue could garner around €46million ($52 million) in fees per year.
The determining vote, but, lies with Socialist town mayor Anne Hildag, whom reported this week that such establishments were not her proverbial steaming hot beverage, an idiom, by the way, that apparently translates word for word and has the figurative meaning that is same.
Which all means it is likely Paris will turn to the traditional London model, of heavily managed and very exclusive membership clubs, in order to replace the troubled cercles de jeux. The new clubs, which would provide table games but no slots, could be up and running as early as next year.
