Demise Of EU Expert Group Decried

A member of European Parliament (MEP) has promised to inquire into the fate of the European Union’s Expert Group on Gambling Services after former regulators complained about its demise.

Francesco Rodano, the former head of Italy’s gambling regulator, grumbled about the recent expiration of the expert group, a cross-border organisation at which EU regulators from countries including Malta, the Netherlands and Italy met to discuss common issues.

“We learned a lot, we learned from each other, and now it’s killed,” said Rodano, currently a Playtech executive.

In response, Romanian MEP Cristian-Silviu Busoi has promised to lodge a written question before the European Parliament asking about why the group was disbanded.
