UK’s Gambling Commission wins case against Daub Alderney
Daub Alderney’s fine appeal has recently been ruled in favor of the Gambling Commission.
Over a year ago, back in September of 2021, the United Kingdom’s gambling regulator had imposed a fine of nearly 6 million pounds on Daub Alderney for several social responsibility shortcomings.
The company appealed the commission’s decision in court, labeling the amercements unfair and excessive.
After a recent hearing, the judge assigned to the case, Judge Findlay, rejected the firm’s appeal, stating that the penalty was justified and fair.
“The firm’s breaches were very similar in nature to a number of previous ones dating back to 2018 that got hefty fines imposed on the violators, so Daub Alderney’s breaches should be treated similarly. There is no additional evidence that suggests that the fine was wrongfully imposed or that the commission took any missteps during their decision making process.”
stated the judge.
“We take our decisions very seriously when it comes to penalizing companies, so we are delighted with the appeal’s outcome.”
stated the deputy chief executive officer at the Gambling Commission, Sarah Gardner.
