Seminar on Sports Betting and Anti-Money Laundering
This technical seminar gathered experts in sport policies, betting operations and the fight against money laundering to facilitate an exchange of knowledge and consider whether the field of sports betting activities should be investigated further as a risky sector with regards money laundering.
