    As an ardent right wing Zionist Adelson has given heavily to Israeli causes and interests...Is this a Moral Dilemma for Right Wing Zionism? If not, why not?






    Macau Probes Sands China, Sheldon Adelson Company, Over Document Transfer

    HONG KONG -- The Chinese arm of U.S. billionaire Sheldon Adelson's gambling empire is being investigated by Macau privacy authorities over its handling of documents related to a lawsuit by its former CEO, who claims the company has links to crime bosses and encourages prostitution as part of its business strategy.

    Sands China Ltd. said Wednesday it was notified by Macau's privacy watchdog that an official investigation has been launched into the alleged transfer of "certain data" from the Asian gambling city to the U.S.

    The former CEO, Steve Jacobs, was fired in July 2010 and filed a wrongful dismissal lawsuit three months later. He accuses the company of breach of contract and pushing him into illegal activity in Macau. The suit has drawn interest from U.S. Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission investigators for possible violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
    ..........In a June 27 legal filing, Jacobs claimed Adelson, a billionaire philanthropist who has pledged to back U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney with $100 million, personally approved a strategy of using prostitution to boost revenues at his casinos in the Chinese territory.

    His lawyers say Las Vegas Sands has failed to turn over documents and emails that show the strategy was directed by senior management.
