It did not appeal the decision, and has since paid the sum demanded by the regulator. However, none of the other licensees have done so.The first year under the new Swedish Gaming Act has seen Spelinspektionen take action against a number of operators for a range of offences.These run from from failing to integrate with the country’s self-exclusion database Spelpaus to serious deficiencies with anti-money laundering and social responsibility controls – to the extent that Global Gaming had its licence revoked over such issues.In total around SEK117.6m in fines have been levied, with the largest a penalty of SEK19m imposed on Betsson’s Nordic Gaming Group, for repeatedly breaking the rule that limits operators to offering players a single bonus upon sign-up.Paf’s fine, coincidentally, is the smallest levied on an operator, with Legolas.bet fined the same amount for offering odds on sporting events featuring participants under 18.A number have already prevailed in their appeals, with bet365, Betsson, AB Trav och Galopp and Kindred Group having penalties for allowing betting on events featuring underage players overturned.Spelinspektionen noted that the Swedish legal system did indeed allow for appeals against fines.“However, it would have been better if they had tried to understand the purpose of the law instead of challenging the legislation,” a spokesperson for the regulator said.“If there is uncertainty about parts of the legislation, we recommend that the companies choose the safe alternative and do not risk violating the law.”The regulator’s approach to enforcement has come in for a degree of criticism during the year, with operator association Branscheforenigen för Onlinespel (BOS) saying that more clarity was required. It has also claimed that the focus on penalising failings by licensees was only benefitting illegal providers.Spelinspektion, however, has argued that operators are simply “unaccustomed” to its enforcement approach.

A “Friendraiser” at Catfish Place attracts 75 supportersTen days ago Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson announced his candidacy for Mayor of Apopka. Today he began his campaign by meeting with friends, family, and residents of Apopka at The Catfish Place Restaurant.He called it a “Friendraiser.”Bob Johnson, the owner of The Catfish Place, introduced Nelson. Johnson related how he first met Nelson 35 years ago during his first week of operation.In that time, both men have come a long way. Johnson the owner of one of the most successful restaurants in Apopka, and Nelson a former Legislator, current Orange County Commissioner, and a local business owner as well.Nelson addressed the crowd of about 75 supporters, and in his short speech, he stressed the need to bring civility back to City government.“You can’t always agree with everybody, but you can handle yourself with civility because we need this community back together.” said Nelson “We’ve got so many opportunities but only one chance to get those opportunities right.”Nelson attended the event in a casual button-down short sleeve shirt and blue jeans. His attributed his “get-to-work” attitude as the reason for his attire.“It’s not just about being in a coat and tie. I’ve got my work jeans on too,” he said. “It’s about getting the local community involved.”Part of that community involvement will come in the form of enabling non-profits to flourish in their roles in Apopka.“Community organizations are better equipped to meet certain needs,” he said. “Needs that are beyond the role of government.”Nelson is challenging one-term Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer, who also announced his candidacy for re-election last week.

Top StoriesBilling By Pvt Hospitals Highly Inflated And Unreasonable: Plea In Supreme Court Seeks Mechanism To Regulate Cost On COVID19 Treatment Across The Country Srishti Ojha11 May 2021 11:23 PMShare This – xAlleging commercial exploitation of Covid patients by private hospitals, a plea has been filed before the Supreme Court seeking nationwide Cost Related regulations for treatment of Covid 19 patients at private/ corporate hospitals. The plea has stated that presently when the nation is fighting a battle against a pandemic, all private hospitals running on public land allotted at concessional rates, or under category of ‘charitable institutions’ should be called upon to provide the hospitalisation and treatment to covid 19 patients pro bono and on non-profit basis. Advertisement Further, the plea has argued that tariffs of other private hospitals should also be regulated by Centre on fixed cost basis to preserve the human life. The plea filed by Advocate Sachin Jain has sought directions to Centre to bear the cost of expenditure on treatment of Covid-19 at hospitals for the poor and vulnerable who neither have insurance nor have coverage under government health schemes like Ayushman Bharat. Advertisement The petition has also urged the Court to direct Centre to combat commercialisation of private health sector and identify individuals and hospitals involved in black marketing of essential health services at the hour of a national calamity. Citing a news report that talked about a covid patient being charged 12 lakhs for treatment and insurance companies receiving claim of 5-6 lakhs for treatment, the plea has stated that the size of the claims is a matter of grave concern even for the insurance industry which states that even with ‘no surgical interference’ the biling by private hospitals are highly inflated and unreasonable. Advertisement Advertisement According to the petitioner, as per the news reports, the insurers have been objecting to the artificially inflated bills being raised by the private hospitals. Further, it has stated that if inflated billing by private hospitals can become a cause of concern for insurance industry, what will be the plight of a common man who neither has fat wallet not an insurance cover to reimburse in case hospitalisation is required. Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The plea has stated that its a matter of grave concern large section of people in India still do not possess any insurance cover and are not benefitted under any government health scheme. According to the petitioner, considering the resource constraints pf Public health sector, its apparent that government health sector alone may not be able to manage the fallout, and extensive participation of private health care sector would be required particularly to deal with moderate and severe cases of covid 19 that require hospitalisation. ”It therefore becomes expedient for the State to promptly combat the commercial exploitation by private hospitals and bring in place adequate regulations on the tariff structure for regulating the private hospitals for treatment of COVID19 patients, to make them affordable and accessible with a view to preserve human life which is of paramount consideration ” the plea reads. The plea has cited the top court’s judgement in the case of Moolchand Kharaiti Ram Trust (2018) stating that the Court had itself strongly condemned the exploitative and commercial tendencies of most private hospitals. The petitioner has further cited the case of Parmanand Katara vs Union of India, and stated that the Court had not only given precedence to preservation of human life over any other factor, but also casted special obligation on healthcare sector including private to first save the life.
