Aussies among those released from Chinese jail

News on 12 Aug 2017

Reports Friday that Australian VIP marketing exec Jason O’Connor would be among those released from jail by the Chinese authorities were confirmed Saturday when Chinese officials revealed that O’Connor had been released early Saturday morning and immediately taken to the airport for deportation back to Australia.

Our readers will recall that O’Connor was among 16 Crown Resorts staffers both locally based and from Australia who were detained for promoting gambling in October last year.

Melbourne-based O’Connor was also sentenced to a fine of RMB2 million, or $A390,000,

Ten of those arrested, including Aussie nationals Jerry Xuan and Jane Pan Dan, were released in July (see previous reports.)
