16 Crown Resorts Casino Employees Jailed in China
Today the Melco Crown Resorts case was heard in a Shanghai Court. The trial resulted in 16 Crown Resorts casino employees jailed in China. They were all sentenced to 9-10 months in prison. All had pleaded guilty as charged.
The casino employees had been arrested on 14th October 2016 and their time already served in prison will count toward their sentences. Fines were also levied.
There were originally 19 defendants in the court case but three were released last November. They worked for the sales and marketing department and they were not fined or sentenced to jail.
