Unspecified amount of debt with Melbourne casino settled - Tuesday 12th of July 2005

An undisclosed amount of gambling debt owed by Datuk Seri Osu Sukam to a casino in Melbourne has been settled, a week after a London casino failed to recover RM7.1 million from him.

The New Straits Times understands that the matter was resolved in the High Court yesterday.

It is unclear whether the former Sabah Chief Minister paid the debt in full. Few details were available as the terms of the settlement were confidential.

When contacted in Melbourne, Crown Casino media director Gary O’Neill said the casino considered the matter closed.

“As far as Crown is concerned, the matter has reached its conclusion,? he said.

“The terms of the settlement are confidential.?

He would not comment further on the case.
