Adelson exposes Triad ties in Macau

During a lawsuit testimony in Las Vegas, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson made a reference to Triad organized crime operating in Macau. The comment went unnoticed in Las Vegas but sparked a media inferno in Macau and prompted former Sands's partner, casino operator Galaxy Entertainment, to issue a filling with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange about inaccurate stements. Sands and galaxy had initially won a macau license together back in 2002 but had failed to reach agreements on the operational deals and were forced to split up.
