CHIPS Charity and Genting UK have presented a brand-new powered wheelchair to a five-year-old girl from Chichester. The wheelchair has been presented at the Genting Casino in Southampton.

Leah Weller, studying in St. Richards Catholic Primary School, has a diagnosis of Mitochondrial Disease. As a result of the disease, Leah needs a specialist powered wheelchair to allow her to move around independently.

However, Leah has now been presented with a new powered wheelchair with hi/lo function that allows her to adjust the height of the seat herself. This new chair will provide Leah with improved mobility.

“Leah and I would like to say thank you to Genting UK, CHIPS Charity and the marathon runners for raising funds and presenting Leah with this new powered wheelchair. Having this wheelchair means so much to her. It offers her a level of comfort and additional features that will change her life for the better. She spends many hours in her chair, and it will give us all peace of mind knowing that she is more comfortable and independent. The impact that this will have on Leah’s life is huge and we are so grateful for everyone’s generosity,” Claudia Weller, Leah’s mum said.

The wheelchair was purchased with funds raised by employees at Genting UK, who ran in the Rock n Roll San Diego Marathon and Half Marathon in June 2018. An amount of £50,000 was raised in total by the five runners from Genting Casino UK and the money was donated to CHIPS.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to present Leah with this brand-new chair and it is wonderful to know that it will have such a positive impact on her life. I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you Irene Nuqui and rest of the team for all the effort they have put into raising money for such a worthy charity,” Jon Duffy, Director of Corporate Assurance and Regulatory Affairs at Genting UK said.

“We have been working with Genting for a number of years and I want to thank them for all of their continued hard work and support. They have done an incredible job and helped to change many young lives across the UK for the better,” Linda Lindsay, CHIPS Charity co-founder said.

Guardia di Finanza Accuses SKS365 for Tax Evasion

Guardia di Finanza, the financial police in Italy, has accused SKS365, the Malta-based gambling operator, for tax evasion.

The fiscal probe conducted by the Guardia di Finanza law enforcement agency in the coastal city of Reggio Calabria concluded that SKS365 had failed to declare about 4 billion euros in taxable income between 2015 and 2016. Investigators said the company made the money by “carrying out gambling activities illegally in Italy.”

Ramphastos Investments acquired SKS365 for 158 million euros in August 2016 and November 2017. During the police sweep in 2018, the prosecutor’s office clarified that “no claims of responsibility” emerged against the company’s new owners.

SKS365 told that its current management has no links to the company’s previous activities and that it is now suing the company’s previous owners and seeking compensation.

Colonel Cesare Antuofermo, a Guardia di Finanza officer involved in the case, told that the legal entity liable for the tax offenses remains the same, even if the corporate structure — and its shareholders — have changed.

Antuofermo added that the latest allegations are “the largest ever tax evasion claim issued against an online gambling company in Italy.”

SKS365 will now have 60 days to make its case to the Italian Revenue Agency, which has taken over the tax evasion case from the Guardia di Finanza. The tax authority will then issue a notice that formally certifies the amount of taxes owed by SKS365 and the payment deadline.

In a statement, SKS365 told OCCRP it “reserves the right to take legal action aimed at protecting its interests and those of its investors. The company does not provide comments or specific information on its legal actions.”
