Opposition to the privatisation of the Mount Parnes and Corfu casinos was voiced by casino workers recently who unanimously agreed that the removal of the gaming institutions from state hands could lead to organized crime, protection rackets, money laundering, drug trafficking and rigged games. In a statement, the workers said that the denationalisation policy is like a noose around the neck of local communities where private casinos operate adding that Greece had too many casinos for the size of its population.



At the same time the union called on judicial authorities to investigate allegations of unconstitutional practices in private casinos that should be punished.

It should be mentioned that the a total of 37 expressions of interest have been received from Greece and abroad in a tender to privatise the Mount Parnes Casino near Athens, and according to the Hellenic Tourism Real Estate, the state`s representative in the sale, major companies from the US and Europe were among those to express interest in the purchase of an equity stake in the casino, and its management.
