Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 17 July 2004


Former ATSIC deputy chairman Ray Robinson has angrily dismissed claims that he gambled almost $5 million at Queensland casinos.

A newspaper report today says Mr Robinson's gambling records show he wagered $4.8 million over a two and half year period.

But Mr Robinson says the report is wrong.

"How would I gamble away that amount of money," he said.

"I would never had probably more than $60,000 in my bank at one time in my life."

An Australian Federal Police spokeswoman says the matter was investigated and no charges have been laid.
