Gaming operator Betsson has written to the European Commission complaining about what it described as “the continued and flagrant breach by the Dutch authorities of EU law”.

The complaint claims that this goes against the fundamental principles upon which the EU was founded.

“Betsson view the ongoing confusion in the Dutch market as unacceptable. We have therefore submitted an official complaint to the European Commission. The current law in the Netherlands is not in line with EU law and we have therefore asked the Commission to re-open the infringement proceedings that were initiated against the Netherlands in 2006,” said Ulrik Bengtsson, CEO and President, Betsson AB.

“A compliant legal framework would remove the confusion and instability that the actions of the Dutch gaming authority, KSA, are creating for Dutch consumers at present. In addition, Betsson trusts the Commission to ensure that the KSA immediately refrains from continued enforcement of a law, which has already been the subject of infringement proceedings by the Commission.”
