An investigation into Crown Casinos has revealed the company, which is part owned by James Packer, did business with tour operators linked to Asian organised crime in an effort to bring Chinese high-rollers to Australia.
The joint investigation by 60 Minutes, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age also alleges the company’s hunger for profits endangered its own staff.
In 2016, crown staff in China, including three Australians, were arrested and charged with the promotion of gambling, which along with gambling itself, is banned in China.
Ellen Fanning is joined by Professor of Indigenous Policy (Workplace diversity) at the University of Technology Sydney Nareen Young, research director at the Centre for Independent Studies Simon Cowan, president of Chief Executive Women Sue Morphet, national political editor at News.com.au Malcolm Farr and Investigations Editor at The Age Michael Bachelard to discuss the revelations.
