Spillemyndigheden Files Triple Injunction Against Mr Green

Gaming operator Mr Green has been issued three injunctions against it by Danish gaming regulator Spillemyndigheden for violating the Money Laundering Act.

The injunctions came after an investigation found that Mr Green had deficiencies in their risk assessment, documentation checks, and business processes for fighting money laundering.

The first violation was related to a flawed risk assessment procedure that ran in violation to Section 7 of the Money Laundering Act. The second violation was related to Mr Green not referencing the intervals for internal controls to take place, as they haven't written a formal procedure for this. The third issue was a lack of documentation for checks, as the operator didn't have documentation for checks or internal controls.

In a statement regarding the failings, Spillemyndigheden said: "Companies covered by the law must identify and assess the risk that the company may be misused for money laundering or the financing of terrorism.

"The requirement for internal control also implies that a check must be carried out as to whether the controls are carried out - i.e. that a control is carried out with the controls. Mr Green has not sufficiently complied with business process obligations for controls."

Mr Green is also going to be facing ramifications related to anti-money laundering failures in a different case. The company allegedly breached Section 26 of the Money Laundering Act by not complying with a requirement to inform the country's Money Laundering Secretariat when a suspected case of money laundering occurs.

Mr Green, which is owned by 888, is reportedly working closely with Spillemyndigheden to fix their processes to try to rectify the violations and hold favor with the group.
