An important money laundering suspected - Enghien-les-Bains Casino
The casino of Enghien-les-Bains would be involved in a money laundering case for public works companies. The policemen of the central department of the races and games have arrested three people on Tuesday morning as part of an investigation related to money laundering in a gaming casino property located in Val-d'Oise. According to information reported by the media, this survey was ordered by the prosecutor of Pontoise under the instigation of Tracfin, the French anti-money laundering agency of the Ministry of Economy and Finance. The suspects arrested are suspected of laundering by organized gangs, illegal employment practices and tax evasion.
The case started in February 2014 when employees of the casino of Enghien noticed and wondered about significant transfers of money made by three discrete players. The latter would have attended the institution assiduously and exchanged tokens purchased at each entry against a cash voucher. Having been informed of this well known malpractice to launder dirty money, the Tracfin grabbed then the Pontoise court to conduct investigation against the alleged players supposed to bring money from forty public building contractors of the Île-de-France region. While the degree of involvement of these companies is not yet known, it seems that the leader of the network would be a forty years Pakistani already known by the French justice. According to the survey, nearly € 4.3 million have transited and suspects allegedly received a 10% commission on all amounts processed.
