[Henry Norman] Casino Gambling Controversy Simmering in Western Samoa


Web-manager’s Note: The attached file was uploaded by Mr. Henry Norman on the facebook page, Yap’s Development (link). We re-post the text and the link here.

A few days ago, Yap State Government (on their official web site) posted another brief, which had an “upbeat” item about ETG and gambling in Samoa. Incidentally, the original article was altered, presumably to “look better for ETG”… Which makes it the third (known) time that someone in the government is using the State controlled web site to promote some hidden (and personal? Or is it state policy?) agenda… This kind of media manipulation sure does not look good for a democratically elected government…

Anyway, to offset the “good news” about Samoa being positive about gambling, I found a number of articles to the contrary… There is some resentment in Western Samoa, to the idea of building a large casino, and it seems to be growing. These articles are collected in this document, highlighted and footnoted (as usual! And BTW, there is a LOT more out there: try googling with “ETG casino Samoa”!)

A very interesting piece of information is revealed in those articles: ETG is said to need 500 hectares (1,235 acres, or 2,000,000+ square meter) for a 500-room resort, with a casino and a golf course. If all goes well for ETG, construction is planned to begin in June, it is reported.
