Kudos to Cairns Blogger Kitcheslut for his continued digging into the financial affairs of one Tony "Aquis" Fung.
FUNG OVERSEAS CONNECTIONS DETAILED
ICIJ has been investigating the massive Chinese wealth parked overseas by especially Mainland Chinese - party members, their families, and military families.
"IF" a proper job of vetting Fung for a casino licence is being done, of course the Queensland Government would be well aware of these foreign account links, and which Fung would have been required to disclose. And Fung's history extends to Zhongnanhai and the ruling elite.
You've got to wonder about the stability of a country when the leaders are all "hedging their bets" at tax-havens and secret bank accounts around the world.
As we pointed out early in the Aquis process, it is unlikely that Fung would be the sole holder of a casino licence, as they have zero experience in this field. Look for one of the major world players (including the Las Vegas firms like Wynn, Sands, and MGM) to have operational control of a project this large.
