Construction of casino in Middelkerke to be delayed

The construction of a new casino in the West Flemish coastal resort of Middelkerke will now take longer than expected. A controversial contract with a construction company to build the casino has been annulled and a new call to tender will have to be launched. In the past the current Mayor of Middelkerke Jean-Marie Dedecker fought against the casino project that he said was fraught with corruption and nepotism.
