A senior vice-president of Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) was fined $20,000 on Friday for providing misleading information over freebies given to gamblers who renewed their annual entry levies.
Lee Poh Yee, 38, who was senior vice-president of gaming services in RWS, admitted to giving a misleading statement to the Casino Regulatory Authority on July 14, 2011 that there was no campaign by RWS to target a certain group of patrons when issuing complimentary Universal Studios Singapore (USS) tickets, nor a plan to give such tickets when people renewed their annual levies.
Now senior vice-president of corporate finance, Lee is the third and last person in RWS to have been convicted.
Last year, former vice-president of VIP services Albert Lim Tze Chen, 44, was fined a total of $100,000 on three charges while former RWS assistant manager Sim Bee Ling, 31, was fined $20,000 for instructing a team leader to erase with correction fluid all mention of the giving out of USS tickets for annual levy renewals in a briefing book.
