Following the conduct of a licence review, the Commission decided to revoke the Personal Management Licence issued to Alessandro Francaviglia (the Licensee) under the provisions of section 119 of the Act on the grounds that he was considered unsuitable to carry on the licensed activities permitted by the licence.
The Commission found that:
- When working in a licensable role, whilst at work just before midnight on Thursday 19 July 2018, the Licensee was on duty at the casino. At this time, he was observed on CCTV behaving in a suspicious manner and was subsequently found in possession of a £100 chip that was found concealed in his shoe. When the Licensee attended an investigatory meeting, he was shown footage of the incident on the 19 July together with other footage from the 16 July 2018. He admitted to taking a further £100 chip and produced it to the management on that date. The Licensee asked to resign and was allowed to do so.
- The Licensee failed to inform the Commission of his resignation following the commencement of disciplinary proceedings in respect of gross misconduct.
