Casino Control Authority Review Findings Released

Sky City has welcomed a report, released today, which outlines the findings of a Casino Control Authority (CCA) review of the company’s reporting procedures and concludes that Sky City fulfilled its obligations to notify authorities of incidents of staff dishonesty.

Sky City Managing Director, Evan Davies, said the resulting report confirmed that Sky City took appropriate action in all instances investigated and that in any event no legal requirement existed for the company to advise the DIA of any incident involving dishonesty of licensed staff.

“We are pleased the review has been completed and that Sky City has been cleared of the allegations of improper behaviour suggested by Hon. Winston Peters and an ex-employee,” said Mr Davies.

“We are fully aware of our compliance obligations within the legislative environment and place this as a high priority in the conduct of our day-to-day business. Accordingly, we have always acted appropriately and with the maintenance of the highest operational standards in mind,” he said.

Mr Davies said Internal Affairs Minister Mark Burton’s suggestion that reporting procedures for Sky City could change was a matter for the government and the CCA to decide.

“The CCA review proves that Sky City exceeded its notification obligations and we will continue to do so. If the CCA changes the reporting procedures then of course we will comply,” said Mr Davies, who stated that adjustments to licence conditions made in June 1998 were not done at the request of Sky City.

He said any dishonesty issues have been, and would continue to be managed appropriately.

“Unfortunately it is a reality for any large organisation that some staff may attempt to take advantage of their employer, and in doing so risk bringing fellow employees and the company into disrepute,” Mr Davies said.
