Jordan Casino Gate
Document 4: Confirmation that Casino Project Falls Under Tourism Ministry's Regulation

Letter dated August 208, 2007, from Ministry of Tourism that bears signatures of all the persons reporting to the National Tourism Council (mostly hotel owners and well known experts on tourism in Jordan). This purportedly notifies them to consider the “Casinos and Go Carts (projects) as falling under the regulation of the Tourism Ministry.” According to the Jordanian Parliamentary Investigation, at least one signatory (Faris al Janadi) stated he signed only after being threatened to do so by a Cabinet Minister.
