Johor government pours cold water on casino plan reports

    Johor’s state government has not received any application or proposal to open a casino in the state to date, local media cited Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin as saying. He added all casino licenses are controlled by the federal government and not the state. According to press reports late last year, Berjaya Assets Bhd is planning to turn some of its land in Johor Bahru into an integrated resort, potentially including slot machines.
