3 staff from Resorts World Sentosa charged with forgery and giving false information
Two employees of Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) have been charged with forgery, and a third for giving false information.
Lim Tze Chean, 43, is accused of forgery on seven counts - twice on May 31 and five times on June 1 last year.
Lim, Vice-President of VIP Services at the Gaming Services Department, allegedly removed the words "Annual Levy" from records.
Court documents state that this was done with the intent to deceive Casino Regulatory Authority (CRA) into believing that RWS did not issue complimentary Universal Studios Singapore tickets to patrons who renewed their annual levy.
The maximum penalty for forgery is a jail term of up to four years and a fine.
Lim also faces two charges of providing false information in July last year - one to CRA inspectors, the other is to the company's internal Board of Inquiry.
For providing false information, Lim could be jailed up to two years and fined up to $50,000 on each count.
Also charged this morning was Sim Bee Ling, Assistant Manager of VIP Services.
The 30-year-old petite woman is accused of instigating a Thien Lai Foo to forgery on three occasions.
Court documents said it was to hide the fact that RWS issued complimentary USS tickets to patrons who renewed their levies.
She had apparently instigated Thien to change entries in a briefing book some time between May and June last year.
On each count, Sim faces up to four years' imprisonment and a fine.
Later in the afternoon, a third employee - Lee Poh Yee, Senior Vice-President of Gaming Services, was charged with one count of providing false information to CRA inspectors.
The 36-year-old father of two allegedly gave a false statement on July 14.
These charges come on the back of a $600,000 fine imposed on Resorts World Sentosa yesterday.
The integrated resort was fined for breaching social safeguards against problem gambling - by partially reimbursing the annual entry levy for about 3,400 local casino patrons.
