Seventeen employees of Crown Casino charged with promotion of illegal gambling in China are facing trial in a Shanghai district court Monday where the conviction rate is at 99 percent. 

Among those charged are three Australians, including Melbourne-based executive Jason O'Connor, Beijing-based international marketing director Jerry Xuan, and colleague Pan Dan.
