Greens draft gambling regulations amendment
Mon, 16 Jul 2012 8:27a.m.
The Greens are proposing a shake-up to gambling regulations in order to ensure casinos aren't profiting from crime.
The party's drafted a bill that would amend the Criminal Proceeds of Crime Act - insisting casinos pay back takings if they are found to originate from illegal means.
MP Denise Roche says casinos already have the required technology in play.
“It’s not a big jump for them to be able to identify money-laundering money, for example, and they’ll be required to do that anyway under the money laundering and anti-terrorism act,” she says.
Denise Roche says the change is to get back the proceeds of significant crime, not to chase small amounts being blown on pokies.
