One Hundreds Sand chairman, Larry Claunch, has come out of hiding to lead a massive damage control campaign to save his overdue Denarau Island casino.
Claunch and his public relations team swung into action a couple of days ago with a press statement that declared 'Fiji's First Casino Now Under Construction'.
It was accompanied by a highly toxic blurb that declared: "While there have been unexpected road blocks thrown in our way in the past, we prefer to look to the future with great excitement! This sentiment is shared by the entire worldwide and Fiji based OHSL team."
Claunch and his team had their deadline extended last week by a rather desperate regime who sold the casino as a big money spinner for Fiji that would be up and running by October this year.

Both the illegal attorney general Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum and One Hundred Sands have insisted the casino is still on the horizon, despite big holes in their story and growing cynicism by Fiji citizens.
In this week's press statement, Claunch insists he'll deliver 'Fiji's first casino' and touts new investors.
"The addition of European, Singaporean and New Zealand financial investment to the already substantial investment from the United States in the One Hundred Sands project has demonstrated the confidence the world financial market has in the direction and future of Fiji."
