THE government is looking into the licence issued to casino developer One Hundred Sands.
Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the review had nothing to do with the lawsuit the company was facing from a former investor "but in respect to their ability to adhere to the licence per se".
"The licence and the licence adherence is a separate issue," he said.
"It's the same way if you give somebody a license to import a foreign chicken, just because they get sued by a company it does not mean that you will stop their licence.
"But in respect to their ability to adhere to the licence per se, that is something that we are looking at very closely at the moment.
"And as I have told other journalists we'll be making a statement on it in the next one week."
The lawsuit was filed by the Snoqualmie Tribe of Washington, United States, which is trying to recover $1.5million invested in the proposed $290million Denarau casino.
The tribe had filed a lawsuit on May 27 in the King County Superior Court listing One Hundred Sands Ltd chairman Larry Claunch and three of his business partners associated with the project as defendants.
Mr Claunch told this newspaper that despite their legal woes, the company remained committed to seeing the completion of the casino and resort.
He said the success of the project was their sole focus and they would not be distracted by the claims made by the Snoqualmie Tribe.
