Argentinian Illegal Online Gambling Site Owners Ordered to Stay in Country

This story was published more than 6 years ago.

This week an Argentinian court ruled that online casino operators operating illegally in the country with the site need to stay inside the borders to face federal criminal charges.

The decision comes after the Public Prosecutor's Office suspended betting site and the case was forwarded to a federal prosecutor. The site switched to operating on a mirror site and still served punters within the country. Charges have now been levied against the site's owners, and a court ruled that the defendants need to stay in the country to face the music.

The group of Quinton Gregori Marshall, Diego Israel Céspedes, Federico Fernández de Francesco, and Margarita Teresa Boeiro face up to six years in prison for violating Article 301 of the Criminal Code, which made unlawful online gambling a felony in the country. That law was passed in 2016.

We'll be updating players as we learn more about the case.

Seems like a very logical law order that one to me, obviously the court believes it's quite huge of a violation if the judge ordered the group not to leave the country.
