Preferential visa treatment was given to high-rollers of Crown. A government inquiry has found that Home Affairs gave it to Crown company.
The Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity found poor record-keeping by officials responsible for monitoring Crown’s high-roller clients who arrived in charter jets, noting that some travellers may have escaped proper baggage checks. The Sydney Morning Herald reports this news.
Mr Zhou was a so-called junket agent for Crown. His job was to attract high-rollers, especially from China, to the casino’s gambling tables.

“He was a bodyguard. He should have been aware that his employment could have created a perceived conflict of interest.” – The ACLEI inquiry.
The former border force officer said that he helped broker the potential purchase of a Vanuatu casino by Mr Zhou.
The reporting revealed the ABF officer’s dealings and prompted both the ACLEI inquiry and an inquiry into Crown’s suitability to hold a casino licence in New South Wales. The organisation only has the power to act on findings of corruption. According to ACLEI inquiry report, it may be clearly seen.
So, according to the inquiry, high-rollers took preferential visa treatment.
