Alvin Chau case verdict to set on January 2023

The verdict about Alvin Chau, former Suncity Group boss cases linked to the now-defunct Macau casino junket Suncity Group Ltd will be announced on January 18.

Thursday, 1 Dec 2022 was the third and final day of closing arguments in the criminal case, being heard at the city’s Court of First Instance.

Macau’s Public Prosecutions Office had indicted Mr. Chau, the founder of Suncity Group, and 20 other people for illegal gaming, criminal association, fraud, and money laundering.

The defendants are accused of running a criminal syndicate that allegedly cheated the Macau government out.

The indictment said the group led by Mr. Chau ran for years a form of illegal, under-the-table betting for high rollers in Macau.

However, during the trial, Alvin Chau denied any wrongdoing. His defense noted that Suncity Group had no commercial need to seek illicit gains from under-the-table betting via the “multiplier”, as the company had a huge gaming business, generating billions of patacas in taxation for the Macau government.
