Head of Latvia’s FIU Says Gambling Industry has also been Used for Money Laundering

Ilze Znotina, Head of Latvia’s Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), has revealed in an interview that the Latvian gambling industry has also been used for money laundering.

“Unfortunately, it is clear that the gambling sector has also been used for money laundering purposes,” Znotina said.

Znotina, however, said she could not reveal the details, and that the conclusions and results would be released later.

Znotina said that the FIU had developed very close and successful cooperation with the Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspection. However, the gaming industry is large, it turns over a lot of money and there are some companies in the industry that have come under close scrutiny.

The work that the FIU is currently doing could lead to changes in the supervisory and crime prevention systems, Znotina said.

Nevertheless, the banking sector will always be the main platform through which attempts are made to launder money, Znotina explained.

Latvian Operators Fight Gambling Suspension in Court
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Online gambling activities have been banned in Latvia since the beginning of April, after clarification was issued on the emergency COVID-19 bill. Now, the Constitutional Court of Latvia has initiated two legal cases from operators challenging the gambling ban.

The operators say that the emergency bill violated the Constitution of the Republic of Latvia which deals with property rights. In article 105, the constitution states that “property may not be used against the public interest. Property rights may be restricted only in accordance with the law.”

“Compulsory expropriation of property for the needs of the public shall be permitted only in exceptional cases on the basis of a separate law against fair compensation.”

The operator Enlabs said the right to private property included the right to conduct business. They added that the restriction of its ability to conduct business was “disproportionate to its legitimate aim to deter society from wasting expenditures.”

Online gaming operator Alfor Group said that the bill violated the principle of equality since the constitution states that “all people in Latvia are equal before the law and the court.”
