Alderney Launches Internal Review Of Practices, Conduct

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission has begun an independent review of its conduct during the Full Tilt Poker incident.

The AGCC announced that the review will take a look into the gambling regulator's conduct and operating processes. Earlier in the year, the AGCC suspended and eventually revoked the gaming licenses that belonged to Vantage Limited , Filco Limited , and Oxalic Limited which together formed Full Tilt Poker. The regulator has announced that Peter Dean CBE, the former Chair of the British Gambling Commission will lead the investigation.

Commenting on the review, AGCC Executive Director Andre Wilsenach said, "As soon as we became aware that there were possible irregularities in relation to FTP’s operational integrity AGCC acted to discharge fully our statutory obligations."

"We believe we acted appropriately and fairly at all times but, following our own internal assessment and the inevitable questions that have been raised by third parties, the Commission decided that it is in the best interests of players, licence holders and AGCC itself to commission an independent review and to make the outcome public."

"I am delighted that Peter Dean has agreed to conduct the review. He has many years of experience at the top of the British Gambling Commission and commands wide respect from operators and regulators alike. He has been asked to review fully the actions taken by AGCC in respect of FTP and to focus specifically on the appropriateness, timeliness and fairness of those actions."

The review is set to be concluded by the end of March 2012.
