Manila, Philippines  –  The country’s casino regulator, Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor), said it lifted its suspension on Resorts World Manila casino resort on Thursday. The confirmation was given in press releases issued by the property’s operator Travellers International Hotel Group Inc.

PAGCOR suspended RWM’s license on June 9, pending an investigation into a fatal June 2 attack by a lone gunman who also killed himself after the rampage.

“After careful scrutiny and deliberations, Pagcor has lifted the suspension order against Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc. (TIHGI), under the business name RWM to operate gaming activities,” a Pagcor statement said.

“The lifting of said suspension takes effect today (June 29, 2017), following Travellers International’s compliance with Pagcor’s required security and safety improvements,”

Pagcor further noted that the lifting of the suspension order does not disregard Travellers International’s officers and personnel of any criminal liability, which is to be determined by government investigating bodies.

Travellers International is a venture between Philippine-based Alliance Global Group Inc and Genting Hong Kong Ltd.
