After failing to renew its operating license, a casino in Sihanoukville, Cambodia has been ordered to shut down operations by Preah Sihanouk provincial authorities, according to a recent report by The Phnom Penh Post.

According to local reports, a document that was dated October 12 and signed by Provincial Governor Yun Min ordering the Pao Tu casino be closed, explained that the expiration of the casino’s license had taken place at the end of 2015 and that the business had not acted in compliance with directives issued in January by the Council of Ministers.

The document went on to state that the owner of the casino should apply to the Ministry of Economy and Finance for a new license and that if the business wished to operate in the province it would need to relocate to a new site that would require approval by the appropriate authorities, according to the report.

In other Cambodia news, local media reported recently that senior government officials and key members of the casino industry met earlier last week to discuss a newly proposed casino bill that would establish a regulatory body that would be charged with overseeing the casino industry in the country.
