Macau’s Judiciary police says it will be following up on the recent appearance of alleged junket thief Huang Shan in Vietnam through the International Criminal Police Organization, local media reports.
In October, it was reported that the former Macau junket boss, suspected of embezzling an estimated $1.3 billion of Macau casino junket investor funds, turned up in a casino in northern Vietnam.
Huang Shan in a public statement said he will face all the debts and would be open to discussions on settlement.
But PJ director Chau Wai Kuong, in a statement to reporters, said that both time and judicial procedures would be required if the fugitive is to be transferred back to the MSAR, given that he is a Mainland Chinese resident.
Chau said his office will continue to stay in close contact with the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau to follow up on the case.
