Court refuses civil compensation in Levo Chan’s case
The Court of First Instance has refused to accept the civil compensation claims presented in the case of junket mogul Levo Chan. Gaming concessionaires, including MGM, Wynn and Venetian Macao, have sought to claim compensation for losses caused by junket. The decision was communicated earlier this week to the lawyers for the operators and the Public Prosecutions Office (MP), TDM has reported. The decision was justified on the grounds of ensuring that the criminal process was upheld without being prejudiced by the civil processes that accompany it. Chan’s trial is scheduled for December 5.
