Thai drugs and money laundering authorities have told the US that no Thais are involved in the ownership of the King's Roman Casino that is run in the golden triangle area of Laos.

 

The Americans have blacklisted shareholders of the the King's Group who have offices in Laos and Hong Kong. They asked the Thais to help them find evidence of the laundering of drug money.

 

But the Thais said there was no evidence they were aware of, reported Daily News.

 

While Thais are employed as managers there are no shareholders who are Thai. They said they are Chinese.

 

Four individuals associated with the King's Group are under close scrutiny by the US.
