It has been more than a year since Ady An’s (安以軒) husband, Levo Chan (陳榮煉), was arrested and charged with running illegal gambling operations and money laundering. Charged with 83 counts of illegal activity and illegally profiting over 1.5 billion Hong Kong dollars, Levo faces up to 20 years in prison.
His company is connected to another casino figurehead, Alvin Chau (周焯華), who was arrested in 2021 for illegal gambling crimes and ultimately sentenced to 18 years in prison. Levo’s final court hearing will occur on March 8. Due to lack of substantive evidence and witnesses, it is speculated that Levo may be found not guilty.
During the search of Levo’s casinos, there was no evidence of illegal gambling found. Inspectors of the Gaming Supervision Bureau further substantiated that there is no solid evidence incriminating Levo of accepting overseas e-sports gambling bets or any illegal gambling operations.
However, it was suspected that Levo had done a thorough job of destroying any evidence, as the system had been cleaned out. In addition to cleaning out the list of his customers, Levo’s properties in Taiwan have also been transferred to Ady and the couple’s son.
Despite China’s tightening enforcement on Macau’s casino operations, Levo may be more lucky than Alvin Chau and will be spared prison time.
