An Auckland pub baron could face a fresh Internal Affairs inquiry into potential breaches of the Gambling Act following an investigation by Stuff. Section 113d of the Gambling Act prohibits ‘key persons’ such as publicans from influencing the flow of gaming funds, and from providing “services to grant recipients if the goods or services [are paid for by grants]”. In a December 2018 letter clearing the arrangement, DIA gaming inspector Artie McClelland said a complaint had been received, but he had received assurances from Saanjh that their grant money was not going to pay rent.
