All national dailies wrote that the GOJ established on Tuesday a four-member panel of experts tasked with supervising casino operators, noting that the commission is expected to screen applications from operators of gambling facilities and conduct onsite inspections of licensed operators to ensure they are taking proper measures to prevent gambling addiction and money laundering. The casino management commission is reportedly staffed by some 100 bureaucrats. Noting that the opposition bloc has been demanding the postponement of the establishment of the panel amid the ongoing scandal involving LDP politicians, the dailies wrote that the launch represents the GOJ’s commitment to move ahead with the opening of integrated resorts featuring casinos.
