RWS director of VIP services fined $20,000

Another Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) executive was dealt with for misleading the Casino Regulatory Authority (CRA) over the issuance of freebies to gamblers who renewed their annual entry levies.

Sim Bee Ling, 31, who is also known as Chernie, was fined $20,000 Saturday.

She pleaded guilty last week to instructing team leader Thien Lai Foo in 2011 to erase all mention of the giving of Universal Studios Singapore tickets for annual levy renewals in a briefing book, which is used to communicate instructions to the next shift of employees.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Gordon Oh said that Sim, who was then the director of VIP Services, had explained to Mr Thien it had to be done for "CRA purpose". Mr Albert Lim Tze Chean, former vice-president of VIP Services, then submitted these books to CRA inspectors.

Mr Lim was fined $100,000 last month on a charge of giving misleading information to CRA and on eight charges of deleting incriminating evidence in online log entries.

RWS had been fined $600,000 last year for these violations.
