Tinian Dynasty and executives indicted


Tinian Dynasty Hotel and Casino and two of its executives have been indicted conspiring to avoid filing reports to the US government on large cash transactions. Prosecutors disclosed that $539,969 had been seized from the casino and its bank accounts since George Que, VIP services manager, was arrested last month. He has been released on bail with a nighttime curfew. A warrant for the arrest of casino manager Tim Blythe is still outstanding. The indictment says that the defendants, if convicted, would forfeit ownership over a further $16.6 million in assets. The struggling casino hotel, which is Tinian’s largest private sector employer, was sold last year to Taiwan’s Howarm Construction Co. by Hong Kong investors.
