Upcoming Full Tilt/AGCC hearing to be held in private
Poker fans are rightly outraged with the recent news that the upcoming Aldernay Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) hearing regarding Full Tilt Poker will be held in private. Even the Executive Director of the AGCC had harsh words for the decision, which he expressed in a recent statement issued on the AGCC website.
Hopefully the decision to hold the meeting in private will thwart any attempts by Full Tilt Poker to further adjourn the hearing.
Here is a look at the most recent statement issued by the AGCC:
“The Commissioners of AGCC forming the tribunal dealing with the regulatory hearing into the affairs of FTP have decided that the hearing will continue on Monday 19th September 2011 but that it be held ‘in camera’. This determination was reached following a pre-hearing application by FTP to further adjourn the hearing.
“André Wilsenach, Executive Director, stated:
“I am pleased that the FTP hearing will continue as scheduled, as was argued on my behalf. However, I am disappointed with the tribunal’s decision that, notwithstanding my arguments to the contrary, the hearing will be held in private. I believe the public has a right to know the reasoning behind the decisions to suspend FTP’s licences and call a hearing, and to hear the evidence that will be put forward on my behalf. It is my understanding that the tribunal conducted a difficult balancing exercise of the interests of the various parties, taking into account the legal arguments for and against further postponing the hearing, and for and against allowing the public to attend the proceedings.”
“As a consequence of the tribunal’s decision members of the public will not be able to attend the hearing. A further statement will be made at the earliest possible opportunity.”
