To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, whether the Gambling Commission undertook due diligence on Vasilijs Melniks before granting a licence to the Park Lane Casino in London.
22 October 2018
The Gambling Commission has advised me that it undertook enhanced and significant due diligence in relation to Mr Melnik’s Park Lane Club casino licence application in 2014. Based on the result of those checks it was satisfied as to his suitability to be associated with the licence. The Gambling Commission is currently reviewing Silverbond’s (Park Lane Casino’s) licence to provide gambling in Britain.
