Brussels (2pm-7pm)


Along with the Cyprus Presidency of the European Union, the EPAS is co-organising a seminar to facilitate an exchange of knowledge between experts in Sport policies, betting operations and the fight against money laundering, to consider whether the field of sports betting activities should be investigated further as a risky sector with regards money laundering.

The seminar will be opened by Torbjørn Frøysnes from the Council of Europe, and Pambos Stylianou, Chairman of the Cyprus Sports Organisation.

The programme will include presentations and discussions to learn about and share various aspects of the sports betting operators, financial agencies, and the authorities in charge of sport and law enforcement. An important element of the programme is also to provide an area for the participants to share their experiences and to encourage working with each other.

Participants will include representatives of public authorities as well as sports organisations involved in the regulation of sports betting, the preventions of betting-related misbehaviours in sports competitions, law enforcement in the financial area, fight against money laundering.

Individuals interested in participating can register by filling in the registration form no later than 28 November 2012.
