The United States Of America is listing Kings Roman Casino operator Zhao Wei as a notorious criminal. The government is further blacklisting his business. The name of his company is now in the Global Crime Network. What is funny, it is like nobody is sure of how Zhao Wei looks like. Last week, Bangkok Post released a story about the casino owner. The story has a photo of a man the paper believes is Wei. Nonetheless, the U.S. government places him on the list of international criminals.
Is Kings Roman Casino Part Of A Global Crime Network?
Kings Roman Casino is in the Golden Triangle, which is an area in Laos. It is a particular economic zone in the whole of Laos. The ‘Golden Triangle’ is strategically close to Laos’ border with Myanmar and Thailand. The region stretches along the Mekong River. It is the Golden Triangle because the three countries meet. This place came into the limelight in 2007. It has buzzing businesses, with almost everything on the region under Wei. The businessman has many things running in the zone. This Chinese national runs the SEZ as if it is own.
U.S. Government Issues A Statement
On Wednesday, the U.S. government issues a statement. The letter comes from the Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence. Sigal Mandelker says, “The Zhao Wei crime network engages in an array of horrendous illicit activities. They include human trafficking, child prostitution, and drug trafficking. The statement also mentions of wildlife trafficking.” The statement later says that the U.S. government is looking for the businessman.
“We are targeting key figures in this transnational criminal organization. It stretches from the Kings Romans Casino in Laos throughout Southeast Asia,” the statement concludes.
Impact of China’s Rise on the Mekong Region
Chiang Mai University is doing a study on the start of the Golden Triangle. Of particular is the Impact of China’s Rise on the Mekong Region. The lead professor of Chiang Mai University is Yos Santasombat. The report says that Zhao is a native of Harbin in Dongbei, which is a region that is on the north-eastern side of China. It is here that Zhao starts to build his fortune. The businessman operates illegal underground gambling dens. After some time, Zhao flees the Dongbei region. He escapes after realizing that the Chinese government is looking for him. It is after arriving in Laos that he starts to build his ‘black empire.’ He begins with the construction of Kings Romans Casino.

Zhao says, “I have come to help the poor farmers of Laos. I want to help them out of poverty and drug problems. I will help by turning this area into a tourist city.” Rather than doing what he promises, Zhao is one of the local crime kingpins.
