Lawmakers suspect ‘illegal’ smoking lounges at Wynn Palace

Four lawmakers-cum-unionists urged the government yesterday to ensure that gaming operators always strictly obey the anti-smoking law and, consequently, always ensure that gamblers do not smoke in no-smoking areas on their premises.

The four legislators, Ella Lei Cheng I, Leong Sun Iok, Lam Lon Wai and Lei Chan U, all of them from the Macau Federation of Trade Unions (commonly known as Gung Luen), also said they suspected that Wynn Palace in Cotai has illegally set up smoking lounges in its gaming areas.

Members of the union will be collecting signatures from Wynn Palace casino workers for two days starting from yesterday for the union to petition the government and the casino resort on the issue. They will continue collecting the signatures outside the resort today.
