Crown Resorts’ head of VIP operations, Jason O’Connor, was set to be released from a Shanghai, China prison following a 10-month sentence for promotion of gambling.  He will be deported back to his native Australia the same day.

Nineteen Crown staff pleaded guilty to the crime of promoting gambling in June, in a trial that lasted half a day.

James Packer ended his pursuit of Chinese high rollers following the arrests.

Mr O'Connor, who lived with his family in Melbourne, was visiting China to meet with Chinese high rollers at the time of the raid, and was picked up by authorities on his way to the airport, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
