A statement from Elaine Driscoll, spokesperson for the Massachusetts Gaming Commission:
After an exhaustive investigation, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s Investigations and Enforcement Bureau (IEB) recently provided casino gaming applicant Sterling Suffolk LLC, with an overview and report of its findings. As is standard procedure after all background investigations, the Commission has scheduled a hearing to publicly review the facts established in the background investigation report. No suitability decisions will be made until after the adjudicatory hearing and the Commission’s deliberation on the IEB report. This hearing will be held October 29th, 2013. Under ordinary circumstances, the Commission releases a redacted version of the background report to the public on the day of the public hearing. However, due to the content of recent media reports and the impending Host Community Agreement referenda on November 5th , the Commission, with the agreement of the applicant Suffolk Sterling, will release the redacted version as soon as it is completed, expected to be Wednesday, October 23d.
