Trade group claims new Lower Austria rules break EU law

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling One of Europe’s leading online gambling industry trade groups has called on the European Commission to dismiss Austria’s largest state’s proposed new gambling laws after claiming they are not compatible with trade rules.The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) – formerly ESSA – added that the Lower Austrian Betting Act – 2019/394/A (Austria) will lead to further growth of unlicensed offshore operators.IBIA – which represents major European operators including GVC Holdings, Flutter Entertainment and Kindred Group – questioned the limitation of online betting licences to a maximum of two years, the setting of a maximum stake of €350 per bet and a ban on in-play sports betting products other than partial or final results.The draft law, which seeks to amend a gambling framework in the region that dates back to the 1970s, was submitted to the Commission for consideration last month.“The IBIA contends that the notified draft law includes an unjustified short licensing duration limitation for online betting, an unwarranted restriction on live (in-play) betting products and an arbitrary limit on consumer stakes,” the body said in a statement.“The Lower Austrian authorities have not provided any evidence that would justify such measures which will have a detrimental impact on the market and the level of consumer channelling.“The association therefore requests that the Commission explore the appropriateness and compatibility of these unjustified product limitations and the related restriction of trade imposed on licensed betting operators and Austrian consumers in accordance with EU law.”IBIA said the two-year licence would be off-putting to operators and “clearly unattractive for long-term business investment”. It contrasted the duration with the unlimited licences in the UK and limitations of either five or 10 years in other markets such as Denmark, Spain and Sweden.IBIA said the €350 stake per bet limit appeared to be an “arbitrary and unevidenced restriction” and said that the UK and Spain do not suffer from increased levels of addiction despite not imposing limits.IBIA cited evidence from Harvard Medical School and the UK Gambling Commission that suggests in-play betting offers no greater risk of addiction than any other type of betting. It also said, again citing the UK authorities, that any threat to sports betting integrity can be managed without the need to impose a blanket ban.IBIA predicted that the restrictions would make licensed operators unattractive to punters. It cited research which shows Austria’s licensed market would account for just 37% of gambling in 2024, compared to 95% in the UK and Denmark.In summary, IBIA claims the restrictions on trade are unjustified and therefore not compliant with EU law.“Imposing product restrictions on regulated betting operators … does not make it any less likely that the sporting events in that licensing jurisdiction will be any safer from betting related corruption, which can take place with a multitude of operators around the world,” IBIA said.“The association and its members welcome the decision of the Lower Austrian authorities to license retail and online betting, but have concerns regarding the effectiveness and the underlining reasoning and impact of the proposals to restrict consumers.”The Lower Austria Sports Betting Act aims to update the state’s laws governing wagering, with the current legislation, the Law on the Activities of Totalizators and Bookmakers, having been in place since 1978. Though the regulations have been updated six times since 2001, the Lower Austrian government explained in August that a comprehensive update was necessary as a result of technological developments in the industry, and to set out specific regulations for online bookmakers and betting terminals hosted in outlets such as tobacconists, video stores and restaurants.Operators will be taxed based on turnover, with a fee for betting terminals also applied, of at least €175 per machine.

Oakland, Calif., City Council says: ‘End Cuba embargo’

first_imgOn May 27, the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity announced that Oakland, Calif., is the latest U.S. city government to take a stand against the U.S. economic, financial and commercial blockade of Cuba.Since Dec. 17, 2014, when U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raúl Castro announced efforts to normalize relations between the two countries, steps have been taken in that direction. The recent closing of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign’s longstanding and legal bank accounts in Britain, however, show international financial institutions are still unwilling to risk U.S. government fines against them. More popular protest will be needed in the U.S. to impel normalization.The following is a release from the International Committee For Peace, Justice and Dignity: “On May 17, in a unanimous decision, the City Council of Oakland California passed a resolution calling for an end to the embargo of Cuba. Along with citing the long standing injustice that the embargo represents, the resolution specifically gives the Council’s official support to current bills in Congress, including H.R. 664: the Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act of 2015; H.R. 3238: the Cuba Trade Act of 2015; S. 299: the Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act of 2015; and S. 491: the Freedom to Export to Cuba Act.“The resolution was initially introduced to the Rules and Legislation Committee of the City Council on May 12 by Council members Rebecca Kaplan and Abel Guillen. At that meeting, public comment was heard urging the passing of the resolution. According to Oakland resident Helene Maxwell, ‘Oakland’s passage of the resolution can serve as a model for local governments around the country to send a clear message to Washington that the embargo must be lifted. It is long past time to make amends for the destructive effects of this policy on the Cuban people for over fifty years.’“Oakland, a city of over 400,000 residents, now joins other Bay Area cities Richmond and Berkeley, which also recently passed resolutions calling for the long overdue ending to the embargo of Cuba.“The significance of these city resolutions is that they are one more public expression of sentiment against the embargo. This position is not just the opinion of the majority of people in the Bay Area but the majority of the people in the country as a whole. Hopefully, other cities around the U.S. can keep this momentum going by adopting similar resolutions.Cuba has never threatened the U.S. in any way and has made it clear that they want a normalization of relations as long as that includes respect for their sovereignty and their right to build their society without the damage and interference of the embargo.”(Theinternationalcommittee.org)A 22-minute, 2015 YouTube, ­“Blockade against Cuba: The longest genocide in history,” explains more.

News Follow the news on Egypt Receive email alerts RSF_en Organisation Concern about Al-Jazeera journalists’ healthFahmy’s health is worrying. He has a shoulder injury that has not been treated properly and he can no longer move his right arm. His family has written to acting President Adly Mansour requesting his release so that he can get appropriate treatment.Greste’s parents also asked President Mansour to intercede on their son’s behalf to get him released. In both cases, Mansour expressed his “understanding” but otherwise limited himself to reaffirming “the independence of the judiciary.” Other journalists on trialAnother Al-Jazeera employee, Abdallah Al-Shami, has been held since 14 August without any charge being brought against him. He began a hunger strike on 23 January in protest against his arbitrary detention, which was extended for another 45 days on 13 March.A military court began trying several employees of the Rassd news network, including Amro Al-Qazzaz and Islam Al-Homsi, on 24 February on charges of divulging confidential information and insulting Field Marshal Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. The judge reportedly refused to allow them to be defended by a lawyer at the first hearing. The trial is to resume on 2 April.Two journalists have received jail terms in connection with their work in the past two weeks. They are Samah Ibrahim, a reporter for the daily Al-Adala wa Al-Hurriya, who was sentenced to a year of forced labour, and Al-Shaab photographer Mohamed Ali Salah, who was given a three-year sentence. Amid continuing arrests and arbitrary prosecutions of media personnel, Reporters Without Borders reiterates its deep concern about the fate of the 20 Al-Jazeera journalists whose trial began on 20 February and continued today.All 20 are charged with “broadcasting false information,” while the 16 who are Egyptian are also charged with membership of a “terrorist organization” and “undermining national unity and social peace,” and the four foreign journalists are also charged with abetting them by providing money, equipment and information.Three of the 20 have been held in Cairo since 29 December. They are Peter Greste, who is Australian, Mohamed Adel Fahmy, who has Canadian and Egyptian dual citizenship, and Baher Mohamed, who is Egyptian.During today’s hearing, Greste and Fahmy were able to speak directly to the judge for the first time, reaffirming their innocence and denying any link with the Muslim Brotherhood or any terrorist organization. They also reiterated their request to be freed on bail, which the judge again denied.The next hearing is scheduled for 10 April.“The authorities must stop invoking the fight against terrorism in order to persecute dissident journalists,” said Lucie Morillon, head of research and advocacy at Reporters Without Borders. “We call on them to release all journalists who are being held on spurious grounds and to withdraw the proceedings against them.

Newspaper editor injured in shooting attack

first_imgNews to go further News IndiaAsia – Pacific Organisation March 3, 2021 Find out more Ghulam Mohammad Sofi, editor of the Urdu daily Srinagar Times, was shot at by two armed men on 17 September.”This attack is yet another clear illustration of the difficulties and dangers faced by journalists working in Kashmir. Caught in the crossfire between Indian security forces, Pakistani militants, and separatists, they are the victims of constant threats and intimidation from all sides, and these have even gone as far as murder,” says Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders.At 7.00 p.m. on 17 September, two young men entered Sofi’s office in Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, and opened fire on him. The journalist sustained a bullet injury to his right hand and his personal security officer was hit by a bullet in the leg as he attempted to intervene. The assailants have not been identified.The Srinagar Times supported the electoral process which opened on 16 September and which should result in the designation of a new state assembly. The elections are contested by many Pakistani and separatist militants however, who see them as legitimising the Indian presence. Just hours before the attack on Sofi, the United Jehad Council, a Pakistani organisation, had criticised several local newspapers for their pro-Indian coverage of the elections, and warned that they were “aware of the black sheep among journalists” and that these should “mend their ways”.In May 2002, Zafar Iqbal, a journalist for the English-language daily Kashmir Images was seriously injured in an attack by unidentified assailants.

[email protected] NewsCommunityPoliticsFour week extension to existing fuel allowance seasonBy Cian Reinhardt – April 2, 2020 233 Print Winter photo created by Dragana_Gordic – www.freepik.comELIGIBLE customers will receive a four-week extension to the existing fuel allowance for this season.Limerick Fine Gael TD Kieran O’ Donnell has said the government has “committed to extending the fuel allowance season by four weeks, from Friday, 10tt April to Friday 8th May”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Fine Gael TD said the move to extend the allowance for existing eligible customers on a once-off basis “makes sense” at a time where “we wish people to stay at home to stay safe”.The extension will help, the Fine Gael TD believes, to “ensure the most vulnerable groups are provided with additional targeted financial supports in a timely and efficient manner”.He said, “This extension will ensure those in receipt of this payment have one less thing to worry about and can remain safe and warm in their homes for the coming period.”Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, Regina Doherty, said, “The Covid-19 emergency presents a once in a century challenge to our society and our public services and we are determined that our Department does everything we can to meet emerging needs and provide comfort to as many as possible.”Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe said, “During this time of unprecedented difficulty for our people, we must ensure that our older and more vulnerable groups are as comfortable as possible, as people adhere to Government instruction in order to stay safe.“It is for this reason that the Fuel Season is being extended until May. Everyone has a part to play in minimising the impact of this public health crisis.”The Fuel Allowance payment is made to over 370,000 of the most disadvantaged households in the country including pensioners and those with disabilities, who are most at risk of fuel poverty.The current 28 week season is due to finish on April 10. The payment is made as an allowance paid alongside the customer’s primary welfare payment.On foot of the changes approved by Government today, the Fuel Allowance season will be extended by 4 weeks and will continue until Friday, May 8.center_img Advertisement Facebook Email Linkedinlast_img read more
