Famed Investor Warren Buffett Says Stock Market 'like A Casino'

Mr Bekier's second day of inquiry evidence revealed how he personally green-lit an $11 million line of credit to a high roller, okayed illegal lending and failed to ask questions about suspect practices.

The royal commission-style inquiry into the embattled Sydney gaming venue has so far prompted the resignation of Star CEO Matt Bekier, who stepped down in March, and sparked calls for a similar probe into Star's Queensland facility.

'You have not shown remorse, acceptance of your guilt and have sought to distance yourself from your offending and your bankruptcy. While I accept your humiliation as part of the proceedings, there has been no humility.'

However, a fraud expert warned the figure is 'just the tip of the iceberg' as more cases emerge. Overall, 'fraud and error' across all the government's Covid programmes, including the furlough scheme, is expected to have cost the taxpayer £15.7billion.

He has also been examined about what he knew about Star's controversial use of China Union Pay debit cards for high rollers at the Sydney gaming facility, accepting that the practice was not appropriate.

Liquor and Gaming NSW is examining Star's fitness to hold a Sydney casino licence, with the probe prompted by reports of the casino operator enabling suspected money laundering, organised crime, fraud and foreign interference.

This was despite the casino's staff being stonewalled by Suncity as they tried to investigate suspect practices, including the junket selling gaming chips to guests directly instead of the patrons purchasing them at the casino's licensed cages.

Mr Bekier resigned as CEO in March after damning evidence at a probe into The Star casino, and on Tuesday he sought to shield the board from the regulator's ire, blaming management for the company's poor culture.

Even as internal audits and documents raised concerns the casino was breaching the law and anti-money laundering requirements, Mr Bekier said he neither he nor the board sought to confirm whether they were telling the banks the truth about the transactions.

On Friday afternoon, Judge Deborah Taylor sentenced the six-time Grand Slam champion to 30 months' imprisonment, of which he will serve at least half. Each count carried a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.

Becker's friend and fellow ex-tennis star Andrew Castle told LBC today: 'Still reeling from the news this Friday afternoon that Boris Becker - who's a great mate of mine, I've done many Wimbledon finals for him for the BBC, I've sat alongside him, I've played with him, I've practised with him, I've been out with him, I've been drunk with him, he's a good man - he's going to prison for two and bandar togel a half years.

Then he has to take responsibility for it'. He is a legend in Germany. Pictured: Llambi performing on stage during the television competition show Let's Dance But the court found that something was not as it should have been.

The ex-pro sportsman, 54, was found to have hidden £2.5million worth of assets and loans to avoid paying his debts, and on Friday begun his sentence in the Victorian, of which he has to serve a minimum of one year and three months.

Becker also failed to declare his share in a £1million property in his home town of Leimen, Germany, hid a bank loan of almost £700,000 - worth £1.1million with interest - and concealed 75,000 shares in a tech firm, valued at £66,000.

ITV broadcaster Matt Chapman questioned whether prison was the most appropriate sentence for Becker, tweeting: While I totally appreciate Boris Becker has broken the law in many ways, I can't help but feel he would be much better used teaching tennis to under privileged kids each day rather than stuck in a cell.
