An investigation is under way into crimes, including murder, linked to the operation of unregistered roulette machines in TT, Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi told the House of Representatives yesterday during debate on a measure to enact tax hikes announced in the recent budget, the Provisional Collection of Taxes Order.

The police, Customs and Excise Division, Immigration Division and Board of Inland Revenue are doing ground-level checks against data held by the gaming licence registry, Finance Intelligence Unit and BIR, he told reporters later. “Check all lawful sources, pool your date and check it on the ground.”

Al-Rawi said most roulette machines are imported from China. He told the House, “There is a serious criminality in the unlawful roulette gaming in TT.”
