MGA denies media charges

MGA-logo-webThe Malta Gaming Authority has launched a counter attack against the claims from some articles by the Investigative Reporting Project Italy (IRPI), La Republica and the Times of Malta. These articles question MGA’s way of operation, suggesting for example that the gaming authority threatened a number of gaming operators to leave Malta if they failed to clean up the sector. The MGA’s governance declared those claims false, stating that the only intention is to harm the Maltese’s Jurisdiction reputation.

Moreover, those articles claimed that MGA denies cooperation with Italian authorities. The Maltese Gaming Association answered that they don’t usually receive requests from the Italian counterparts, while “Requests from law enforcement or financial intelligence units are sent to the corresponding authorities in Malta. Naturally, the MGA cooperates and provides any relevant information to the competent authorities”.

They finished their statement, referring to their first an most valuable goal, which is to prevent criminal infiltration within the gaming sector. They revealed that lots of applications are being refused a license, while they want to ensure that the procedures are the best possible and completely clear.
