AGCC announces public hearing on Full Tilt Poker

On Tuesday the Aldernay Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) sent out a press release verifying the date for the hearing that will decide upon the fate of Full Tilt Poker’s egaming license, which was suspended last month by the AGCC.

The hearing is set for 10AM (London time), July 26, 2011 at the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel in London, England; members of the public and media were invited to watch the proceedings as the AGCC attempts to keep the situation as open and transparent as possible, considering customers are concerned about the safety of hundreds of millions of dollars frozen in their Full Tilt Poker accounts.

Here is a look at the entire the press release:

Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) will hold a public hearing regarding the future of Full Tilt Poker at 10am on 26 July at the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel in London.

The purpose of the hearing will be to make public evidence from both AGCC and Full Tilt regarding the suspension of Full Tilt’s licence and to adjudicate the findings transparently.

Full Tilt’s licence was suspended last month by AGCC following an indictment by the US government and its subsequent failure to satisfy AGCC that its activities inside and outside the US were in order.

Executive Director of AGCC, André Wilsenach, said: “AGCC’s choice to hold a public hearing in to the future of Full Tilt Poker demonstrates our willingness to act transparently and we will welcome members of the public and the media. As ever at all times, our primary concern is the protection of the player.”

Poker players are hopeful that details will emerge regarding the possible sale of Full Tilt Poker which seems to be the last recourse in having their funds returned.
