R e l e a s eTHE HON ALEX SOMLYAY MR isier for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government


"The Territories Minister, Mr Alex Somlyay, has received a letter from solicitors acting for Christmas Island Resort Pty Ltd, setting out their case why the casino licence for the Resort should not be cancelled.

The Minister issued a notice on 16 June 1998 under Christmas Island's Casino Control Ordinance, giving the Resort owners 21 days to 'show cause' why their licence should not be cancelled.

"I am carefully studying the response from CIR's solicitors.”

"Nevertheless the directors of CIR should pay their lawful debts and pay them quickly, including monies owed in the form of staff entitlements," said Mr Somlyay.
