“I’m super excited to announce my first restaurant on the East Coast,” Laurentiis said in a Horseshoe Casino video announcement.Laurentiis’ Horseshoe Casino restaurant will open sometime in 2018.Nigeria’s representative highlighted the work of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Inter-governmental Action Group against Money Laundering in West Africa (GIABA) and called on the entire international community to intensify efforts in that direction.Specifically, the United Nations should make more resources available to the African Institute for the Prevention of Crime and Treatment of Offenders.To that end, they welcomed the Political Declaration and Plan of Action adopted at the fifty-second session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs and applauded its recognition of the need for cooperation between developed and developing countries.The value of the development approach was clearly underlined by the representative of Afghanistan, who said the Government’s counter-narcotics efforts had had remarkable successes across the board in the past year.All of these meetings are only open to delegations from FATF members, observer jurisdictions and observer organisations. The Horseshoe Casino restaurant will take space formerly occupied by Johnny Sanchez, a joint venture between celebrity chefs Aaron Sanchez and John Besh, which closed in September.
A council of ministers responsible for national security and law enforcement and a regional task force on crime and security had been set up.(The restaurant closed before Besh stepped down from Besh Restaurant Group after workplace sexual harassment allegations.) Laurentiis will join two other food celebrities with restaurants at Horseshoe.Food Network’s Guy Fieri runs Guy Fieri’s Baltimore Kitchen Bar, and “Hell’s Kitchen” chef Gordon Ramsay is opening a steakhouse, Gordon Ramsay Steak soon.Speaking late in the afternoon, a representative of that Institute said it was encouraging that nearly a quarter of the countries in Africa had contributed to its functioning.Nevertheless, the institute’s board had found it necessary to call on the Secretary-General to increase funding to the Institute from the United Nations’ regular budget and he asked the Committee to consider recommending an increase to its “subsidy”, to help pay for the salaries of the main administrative officers.
