Game over for Full Tilt Poker?
Tidlig onsdag fik pokerverden nyheden om at Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) har suspenderet Full Tilt Pokers' sin spillelicens. I følge den foreløbig rapport skal alt spil på Full Tilt Poker over hele verden være stoppet.
AGCC har frigivet følgende pressemeddelelse:
"Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) has today issued Hearing Notices under Regulation 46 of its Regulations to Vantage Ltd, Oxalic Ltd, Filco Ltd and Orinic Ltd, collectively trading as FULL TILT POKER.
In addition, AGCC has issued Suspension Notices under Regulation 47 to the above named companies requiring them to suspend all operations with immediate effect.
The decision to suspend these licenses follows a special investigation prompted by the indictments unsealed by US Attorney General’s Office in the Southern District of New York on 15th April 2011, during which grounds were found to indicate that these licensees and their business associates were operating contrary to Alderney legislation. The nature of the findings necessitated the taking of immediate action in the public interest.
The venue and date for the hearing will be announced in due course.
André Wilsenach (Executive Director)
Alderney Gambling Control Commission
Date issued: 29th June 2011"
I en seperat pressemeddelelse har AGCC udtalt:
