    Usually the fastest way to wealth is a crooked line.

    so these "incidents" took place 6 to 8 years ago.....one of the people involved has been tried and CLEARED in the USA although Mexico still wants him (if the USA could not get him I guess Mexico just wants the bribe from him to make that go away) and the other person in the other "incident" has been convicted many years back in a major trial dealing with a well know large scale electronics retailer and fraud, theft, and kickbacks.......but the "justice department" is just now getting around to seeing if the Sands had anything to do with any of the coverups or money laundering

    likely story :rolleyes2:

    Much ado about nothing. This is going nowhere.

    These cases take years to develop. And, often have been pending waiting upon the outcome of other cases.

    I'm still assisting with a handful of complex cases from my law enforcement career - and I retired nine years ago.

    but in the case of Ausaf Umar Siddiqui he was known to gamble huge sums at the MGM, had a large lawsuit with Trump, and gambled at the Sands (and probably just about everywhere else)

    but only one of those is being mentioned as being investigated :poke:

    it was WELL known he gambled there at the Sands and at all the other properties......would the Sands really be the only one that was not reporting properly.....of all the Sands guest that are large players and possibly of questionable backgrounds.....would this one that was well known, had many issues with casino lines of credit, and a very public whale be the only one that the Sands somehow broke the rules for

    and in the other case if the Feds can't get the actual defendant on charges especially a money laundering charge....how will they possibly get the Sands on that charge.....since the defendant would be just as guilty if not more guilty and he is now cleared of charges in the USA...the Sands can't launder money for an individual with that individual also being guilty of at least that as well...yet they have been cleared of their charges

    Oh, I agree. These cases are hard to prosecute. The toughest hurdle, even if there's documentation attesting to improper transfers, is to prove intent.
