The NSW government should reveal the identity of the party to an agreement under James Packer’s Barangaroo casino licence, the Greens say.
The name has been blacked-out on a document held by the state’s gambling regulator, apparently due to commercial sensitivity reasons.
“There are serious public policy questions about who the company is, what has been agreed to and how it will affect the operations of the casino,” upper house MP John Kaye said in a statement on Tuesday.
The report claims that this one agreement has even had its title redacted, and the identities of all parties involved have also been kept under the wraps.
The authority argues that the document is commercially sensitive in nature and that trumps the public’s right to know.
“The information redacted in the VIP Gaming Management Agreement document would, in the view of the authority, not promote the objects of the relevant act and be commercially damaging to the licensee or related entities if released,” a spokesman for the authority was quoted as saying by Fairfax.
The term “Islamic” is grossly abused by extremists who attribute to the religion all kinds of rulings, which in fact contradict the essence of the religion in spirit and in particulars. Among them is the fatwa that justifies the use of terror tactics such as suicide bombings of civilians and attacks against non-combatants in marketplaces, schools, offices, and places of worship. Similarly they have issued a fatwa legitimizing the use of drug money to finance their campaign, despite the fact that narcotics are strictly forbidden in Islam.
Islamic extremists have ruled permissible and recommended the production of drugs and their sale on the streets of Muslim and non-Muslim nations. With such illicit monies, these extremist groups finance the development of their global network, purchase weapons and supplies, and build their front organizations, which represent them under the guise of Islamic activism.
