Unauthorized online OPAP!

A very big upturn in the online betting market was brought by the Council of State following a decision by the Austrian Goalbet (GLB GmbH), which with legal authorization in Greece, appealed to the Supreme Court in a lawsuit against EEPC. and its decision to allow OPAP provide on-line betting services to the interests of licensed companies.

Specifically, by Decision No. 1333/2019, issued on July 19, 2019 and considered on August 18, 2019, the Council of State annulled Decision no. 105/2 / 16.05.2014 decision of the Hellenic Chamber of Commerce, which regulates the provision of online betting OPAP.
According to the above decision, the Austrian online gambling and gaming company GLB GmbH (Goalbetappealed the decision of the HCMC, complaining that Mr OPAP never possessed a license to conduct online betting, as legal procedures for obtaining a relevant license were not followed. OPAP, as it should have done, and therefore the provision of such services by OPAP, since the latter never had a relevant legal license.

The reasoning of the CoE contested decision states, inter alia, that Mr OPAP had to follow the licensing procedure followed by the other 24 legitimate online betting companies (including the applicant Goalbet, that is, to be subject to the provisions of Law 4002 / 2011 (Law of Games).

By way of derogation from the relevant legislation, however, the EUPC considered that Mr OPAP he had a relevant legal license and was therefore in a hurry to regulate the operation of his online betting OPAP.
As to the substance, the Council of State accepts that the authorization held by Mr OPAP does not concern online betting, and the decision concludes with the following reasoning “…

Consequently, the HCMC contested act regulating the offer by the OPAP intervener AE of predetermined online betting games and bases its assumption, wrongly on the foregoing, that the intervener (OPAP SA) is the holder of a relevant license, must be canceled as issued in breach of the provisions of article 27 par. 2 of law 2843/2000 and articles 27 par. 1 and 45 par. 1 of law 4002/2011, in good faith plea in law '

Therefore all this time the provision of online betting on his part OPAP (via the website pamestoixima.gr) was offered in violation of the relevant laws (Law 2843/2000, Law 4002/2011). In the legal circles the decision was expected, while the transitional provisions of Law 4002/2011 expired on 31-12-2011 and therefore the issuance of a new license is no longer possible.

In fact, indeed OPAP should, after the decision is published, refrain from providing online betting through the website pamestoixima.gr, with a particular interest in criminal and tax law expected to be addressed by the competent authorities for operating without a legal license. online betting throughout the period in question.

On the other hand, legal betting companies that have followed the legal procedures to be subject to N. 4002 / 2011 and therefore provide legal online gambling and gambling services, are considered to have recourse to the competent courts seeking damages.
And all this, while the draft Law on the definitive regulation of the gambling market has been stuck with the European Commission for months, as legal uncertainty issues arise.

The decision of the Council of State, which granted the application for annulment against the Committee for the Supervision and Control of Games (EEEP) and annulled the no. 105/2 / 16.05.2014 its decision, according to which the provision of predetermined online betting by the OPAP SA informs that it received OPAP.

According to the announcement, "the decision is in direct contradiction with a number of previous actions by the Greek State, including the official briefing provided to all potential investors during the privatization process. OPAP SA, in relation to the license and the legal right of the company to offer a predetermined online bet by 2020. "

"Although the contribution of online betting is limited and in any case less than 1% of the Group's total revenue (GGR) OPAP, following this decision, the company is already in contact with the relevant bodies, including the EYE, in order to take all appropriate action.
The company is also evaluating how it will seek to protect its interests by any legal means, "the statement concludes.

Everything is regulated by the old favorite matzabelakio method while the old-fashioned pink rabbit method also applies.
Not sure if you can, but then you will be crazy to go with the Broipoecarna and the Albinoleet.

Our "irregularity" was not exempt from the rule ...
Only the honored KKE does that. Try it, better than Bursa.
