The Japanese government said casinos can be legalized without violating the criminal law banning illegal gambling at a meeting of an expert panel for promoting integrated resorts (IRs) on July 18. It said that casinos are meant to provide public benefits, such as tourism promotion and contributions to the community. It also said the illegality of casinos can be ruled out by imposing strict regulations on casino operators like those for horse racing and other publicly operated gambling services.
