(Philippines).- Philippine investigators say they have evidence that a company owned by Japanese gaming tycoon Kazuo Okada, a former director of Wynn Macau, bribed officials over a us$ 2 billion casino-resort project in Entertainment City in Manila, the Philippine Star reported.

Philippine Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said documentary evidence indicated bribery had been committed. “We just could not file the case then because we needed testimonial evidence to be able to come up with a strong bribery case,” she said.

She has directed the National Bureau of Investigation to secure witnesses. The case is also the subject of a criminal inquiry in the United States.
