Police in the world's biggest gambling hub Macau have arrested a croupier and a security guard over a massive casino heist where almost HK$48 million ($6 million) in gaming chips were stolen from a VIP room. Semi-autonomous Macau is the only part of China where casino gambling is legal and is a favourite haunt of mainland high rollers. The heist happened early Tuesday morning at mega casino Wynn Macau, owned by United States gaming tycoon Steve Wynn.

China shuts down Marriott website for a week after hotel chain listed Tibet and Hong Kong as countries

Added: 13.01.2018 7:32 | 0 views | 0 comments


China has shut down Marriott’s local website and mobile phone app after the hotel chain listed Hong Kong and Tibet as countries in an online survey. Despite a series of apologies and a bizarre clarification that it does not support 'separatism' Marriott has become the latest international company to be punished by Beijing for apparently disrespecting China’s sovereignty. In a move which is clearly intended to target bookings of the US hotel giant, authorities in Shanghai on Thursday ordered Marriott to close its website and “conduct a thorough check on all contents”. Visitors to the website currently see a message which says: “We never support any separatist organisation that harms China's sovereignty and territorial integrity. "We apologise profoundly for any behaviour that will cause misunderstanding about the above stance." Marriott sparked anger on the Chinese Internet when it sent out a questionnaire in Chinese which asked members of its customer rewards programme to list their country of residence. The options included Tibet, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. Hong Kong and Macau, which were former British and Portuguese colonies respectively, are ruled as Special Administrative Regions (SAR) by the Beijing central government.

Marriott incensed Chinese Internet users further when the official Twitter account of Marriott Rewards ‘liked’ a tweet from "Friends of Tibet", an India-based group that supports Tibetan independence and congratulated the hotel chain for listing Tibet as a country. Marriott has been frantically seeking to limit the fall out from the gaffe, amid reports that many Chinese have been cancelling their bookings with the hotel chain.  The company has made three online apologies this week, and president and chief executive Arne Sorenson issued a lengthy apology letter, which described the "like" as "careless". “Marriott International respects and supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China. Unfortunately, twice this week, we had incidents that suggested the opposite," said Mr Sorenson.  Last year, South Korean companies were hit heavily by Chinese economic retaliation over Seoul’s deployment of a US missile shield system.

Shanghai probes Marriott hotels over geography gaffe

Authorities in Shanghai are investigating hotel giant Marriott after it triggered an online uproar with a customer questionnaire that listed Chinese-claimed regions such as Tibet and Hong Kong as separate countries. City officials said in a notice dated late Wednesday that they were probing whether the gaffe in Marriott International's Mandarin-language questionnaire violated national cyber-security and advertising laws. Marriott has issued an apology and amended the online questionnaire, which asked members of the chain's customer rewards programme to list their country of residence, giving Tibet, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan as possible options.
