Press Release: The draft on statute on betting shops makes Czech Republic look like a money-laundering machine
Transparency International Czech Republic (TIC) together with Citizens against gambling and Brneni refused a draft of a law on gambling and betting proposed by the Ministry of Finances.
The Ministry of Finances lead by Miroslav Kalousek (TOP09) intended to legalize the present illegal status on gambling with the drafted law. Kalousek wants to divert attention from government’s decision no. 156, which stipulates that 90% of gambling machines be taken off the market by mid-May.
