Council of Europe’s Macolin Convention comes into force

first_imgLegal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling The Council of Europe’s (CoE) Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, also known as the Macolin Convention, has officially come into force.The Treaty sets out a legal framework to tackle match fixing in sport, as well as creating legal definitions for issues such as conflicts of interest, illegal betting, and controls to address poor governance and the handling of confidential information.Italy, Moldova, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland and Ukraine have all ratified the Macolin Convention, while a further 32 countries have signed the Treaty.One of the first courses of action under the Treaty will be to establish the new Convention Follow-up Committee. This group will meet for the first time next year to analyse progress being made through the Convention.The activities implemented by the CoE and its partners will include ‘Keep Crime Out of Sport – Manipulation of Sports Competitions 2018-2020’, a project that looks at providing technical assistance to countries to help them address match fixing in sport.Meanwhile, the Network of National Platforms, which was set up in July 2016 to tackle corruption across sport, will continue to undertake work regarding trans-national cooperation and coordination.“Several years of efforts and mobilisation by a large number of national and international actors have made it possible to take this crucial step in the fight against corruption in sport,” the CoE said in a statement.The Macolin Convention was first introduced in September 2014, but has been delayed due to ongoing opposition from Malta, which vetoed the European Commission signing it on behalf of all 28 member states.Malta’s objections centred around the definition of illegal sports betting. This is defined as “any sports betting activity whose type or operator is not allowed under the applicable law of the jurisdiction where the consumer is located”.The CoE required ratification from at least five CoE member states before it could be introduced in any form. Switzerland became the fifth CoE member to ratify the convention in May, following Norway, Moldova, Portugal and Ukraine.The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS), the World Lottery Association (WLA) and The European Lotteries Association (EL) have also declared their support for the Treaty, calling for more countries to sign.GLMS president, Ludovico Calvi, said: “We now need to focus on its implementation as well as the preparation of the activities of the Follow-Up Committee.“In the upcoming phase, GLMS is very much looking forward to further supporting the Council of Europe with the promotion of the Convention and all on-going and upcoming relevant work streams, such as the setting-up of the Follow-Up Committee, the initiatives of the Group of Copenhagen and the KCOOS+ project”.Chair of the WLA Sports Betting Integrity Committee, Jean-Luc Moner-Banet, added: “On behalf of WLA and its members, I urge states across the globe to proceed with its ratification and the implementation of its provisions. We also call upon states to set up national platforms and take concrete measures against illegal sports betting, as required by the Convention.”EL Secretary General, Arjan van’t Veer, also said: “This Convention is of key importance since – apart from providing clear guidelines on how a state can globally combat this phenomenon – it also delivers for the first time a clear legal basis for the fight against illegal sports betting, which is indispensable for the effective implementation of all provisions of the Convention.“We urge more European states to sign and ratify the Convention as soon as possible to protect athletes and society as a whole.” Council of Europe’s Macolin Convention comes into force 2nd September 2019 | By contenteditorcenter_img Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Council of Europe’s (CoE) Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, also known as the Macolin Convention, has officially come into force.

Mr Green to pay £3m for AML and harm prevention failings

first_img27th February 2020 | By contenteditor William Hill-owned Mr Green is to pay £3m after being found to have breached rules over preventing harm and money laundering in Great Britain. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland Topics: Legal & compliancecenter_img William Hill-owned Mr Green is to pay £3m after being found to have breached rules over preventing harm and money laundering in Great Britain.The operator has become the ninth business to face action as part of a Gambling Commission probe that has led to more than £20m in penalty packages since 2018.The Commission conducted a compliance assessment of Mr Green in July 2018 – prior to MRG Group’s acquisition by William Hill in January 2019 – in which three customer accounts were examined. The regulator found that the operator did not carry out social responsibility interaction with a customer who won £50,000, gambled it away and deposited thousands more pounds.Mr Green also took 10-year-old evidence of a £176,000 claims pay-out as satisfactory evidence of source of funds (SOF) for a customer who deposited over £1m, and accepted a photograph of a laptop screen showing currency in dollars on an alleged crypto trading account as adequate SOF.Mr Green has acknowledged that between November 2014 and November 2018 it did not have effective and adequately resourced AML controls in place to address risks presented by higher risk customers.The settlement agreement consists of a £3m payment to the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms in lieu of a financial penalty. It must also cover Commission costs of £10,349.77.Mr Green has also committed to conducting a compliance assessment of an additional 130 customers.“Our investigation uncovered systemic failings in respect of both Mr Green’s social responsibility and AML controls which affected a significant number of customers across its online casinos,” said Gambling Commission executive director Richard Watson.“Consumers in Britain have the right to know that there are checks and balances in place which will help keep them safe and ensure gambling is crime-free – and we will continue to crack down on operators who fail in this area.”Referencing the Mr Green case in its 2019 financial results, which were released earlier this week, William Hill said: “Since we completed our acquisition we have implemented enhanced policies and processes designed to ensure that the business meets all requisite compliance standards.”Since the Commission’s enforcement activity began six operators have surrendered their licence and can no longer transact with consumers in Britain.During the course of investigations into the nine most serious operating licence cases the Commission examined the actions of 22 individual personal management licence holders.Of these, six surrendered their licence, six received a formal warning, one received an advice to conduct, seven are still ongoing and no further action was taken against two.

Or you may prefer the digital edition on your MAC, PC, or iPad.center_img OFFLOADING IS not an easy skill to master, but get it right and your team will score some sensational tries. Never throw a wild pass or give the ball away cheaply in contact, but always look to offload, to keep the attack alive, if possible, in preference to going to ground.Attacking players should always run with the ball in two hands. Tucking it under your arm automatically tells a defender that you aren’t going to pass, making it much easier for him to tackle you!So keep defenders guessing. Only transfer the ball into the hand furthest away from the tackler at the last moment, using quick feet and a strong leg drive to try and get past your opponent.Don’t go into contact looking to offload the ball. Try to beat your man, but offload to a support runner if you’re held – and if it’s on. Otherwise, go to ground on your terms and set up a ruck.Don’t look to throw a long pass out of contact where a team- mate is likely to be marked by a defender. A good support runner should cut in late on an angled run and take the offload in the space vacated by the tackler.Try to offload with two hands, floating it onto what I always describe as an invisible shelf, making it as easy as possible for the support runner to catch.Step 1: Run straight at the defender, carrying the ball in two hands to keep him guessingStep 2: Step off  one foot to get round the defender, transferring the ball away from his reachlast_img read more
