Tags: Maverick Gaming Washington A Senate bill filed in Washington State would legalise wagering at cardrooms, racetracks, and via online platforms should it pass into law. No tribes have launched sports betting to date, though George said negotiations to amend tribal compacts were ongoing and must be completed before the first bets could be placed. It subject of a hearing in the chamber’s Committee on Labor, Commerce & Tribal Affairs yesterday (4 February). At yesterday’s hearing the legislation was strongly opposed by the Washington Indian Gaming Association. She urged lawmakers to reject the bill, and limit the state’s sports betting market to tribal venues. This was facilitated by a bill signed into law by Governor Jay Inslee in March last year, amid vocal complaints from the state’s largest cardroom operator Maverick Gaming. The bill aims to permit cardrooms and racetracks to offer in-person and online wagering to patrons aged 18 and above. Operators will be required to pay a $100,000 (£73,062/€83,474) licence fee, then a 10% tax on gross revenue. However Eric Persson, chief executive of Maverick Gaming, argued the bill would allow the operator to create 10 jobs per cardroom, and preserve existing roles at its properties. He was supported at the hearing by testimonies from employees and unions. Its executive director Rebecca George suggested that the bill would in fact permit statewide mobile betting. This would contravene the state’s strict prohibition on gambling online, she explained. Each property would be allowed to partner a third party provider to launch a single online offering. This third party must to secure a Casino Service Industry Enterprise licence.

Charities’ public service role could threaten donations, say CAF Donations to UK charities could fall if more charities begin providing public services, according to CAF’s Chief Executive, Stephen Ainger, because donors could be confused by the blurring line between state and voluntary sector.Speaking at CAF’s annual conference yesterday, he said: “the question is whether an increased focus on charities and mainstream services will serve to confuse people even more – leading to doubts as to whether some charities are really independent or have simply become agents for the delivery of a government’s priorities.“If they know that more and more of their favourite charities are state funded to deliver direct services, will they stop giving or switch their support to other bodies?” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 12 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The minister’s bodyguards also maltreated the journalist, said the press freedom organisation, condemning the attack.The minister denied hitting the journalist, in a letter sent 15 October to the general prosecutor Theodori Sollaku. The next day the Albanian association of electronic media spoke out against the assault and called for the minister’s resignation.Referring to the assault as “highly symbolic”, Reporters Without Borders said it was totally unacceptable for the country’s top law and order official to hit a journalist because of criticism. It appeared to pose a threat to all journalists who took issue with the government’s political line.

Cairo correspondent for BNR Nieuwsradio and Het Parool, she was released on 9 April after being held overnight and being taken before a court in the capital. In the end, the only charge brought against her was inability to justify her profession at the time of arrest because she left her press card at home.Another Cairo-based foreign correspondent told Reporters Without Borders that Egypt is currently awash with “spying paranoia” fueled by government comments. Both local and foreign reporters are finding it harder and harder to work because the authorities are doing everything possible to silence critics and restrict freedom of information.At the time of her arrest, Rena Netjes was interviewing young Egyptians in a café in the eastern Cairo district of Al-Rehab for a report on youth unemployment in Egypt. The café’s owner and other people participated in her arrest and handed her over to the police. The owner accused her of spying and wanting to “impose western culture on Egyptians.”Reporters Without Borders is relieved by her release but condemns the attitude of the authorities towards journalists. “This policy of intimidation towards the media must stop,” the organization said.Netjes’ “citizen arrest” was encouraged by prosecutor-general Talaat Ibrahim’s recent comment urging ordinary Egyptians to cooperate with the police and declaring that they had the right to carry out “judicial arrests.” Although the prosecutor-general’s office later denied this, it seems that ordinary civilians cooperated in Netjes’s arrest.
