A newspaper in Singapore says plans by a local businessman to build a 90-million dollar casino complex in Burma have stalled over non-delivery of equipment.
The Straits Times reports today (Tuesday) that the Burmese-registered Victoria Entertainment Resort Club is suing Singapore-based Esasia because it did not deliver four power generators necessary to the project.
Victoria Entertainment is run by Singapore businessman Drake Poh Teong Kang. His company is seeking unspecified damages for breach of contract and loss of profits.
The suit says the generators were to supply power to the resort on an island near Burma's border with Thailand. Esasia denies breaching the contract. The Times says the case is expected to be heard on March first.
