According to the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau

Over 800 suspicious in Macau’s casino deals in 2010

(Macau).- According to official data released by the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, local casinos filed 814 suspicious transaction reports (STRs) with the gaming regulator, in 2010. However, only two of those transactions were heard in court.

T

he STRs were created as a tool to prevent money laundering. But in the last four years the number of cases sent to the Public Attorney’s Office (MP) was only a small percentage of all reports.

In 2007, 64 cases were sent to the MP, a figure that rose to around 100 in the last three years. Of those, only five resulted in prosecution and then later in convictions: one in 2007, another in 2008 and three in 2009.
