Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Slots Austria’s Regional Court of Wiener Neustadt has ordered Novomatic to pay out €2.5m (£2.2m/$2.9m) in compensation to a gambling addict that spent more than €2m on slot games over a 10-year period.The individual in question, who was not identified, played Novomatic slots between 2002 and 2012 while suffering with a gambling problem.Lawyers for the plaintiff said he was “partially incapacitated” by the addiction and that he was unable to work as a result of this issue. All bets were placed on Novomatic devices in the Austrian capital of Vienna.The court agreed and declared all of the bets placed invalid due to the plaintiff’s gambling problem, ordering Novomatic to pay back the money he lost during the period, plus interest.Novomatic was also found to be in breach of Austrian laws regarding limits on stakes and payouts for slot machines.According to the Austrian media, the ruling was made in August, but has only just been made public. Novomatic has stated its intention to appeal against the decision.Confirmation of the ruling comes after Novomatic in August warned “regulatory pressures” could impact the company moving forward, despite posting a 12.6% year-on-year rise in revenue for the first six months of 2018.Sales revenue from gaming machines hiked by 96.2%, mainly due to the firm’s takeover of Ainsworth Game Technology, which was finalised in January.http://www.igamingbusiness.com/news/novomatic-finalises-investment-agtImage: George Hodan 23rd October 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Lawyers argued the player was ‘partially incapacitated’ by addiction Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games Novomatic faces €2.5m pay-out to slots addict Tags: Slot Machines Regions: Europe Western Europe Austria

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Fraud costs the charity sector £2bn a year, according to statistics from The Annual Fraud Indicator 2016.Produced by the UK Fraud Costs Measurement Committee (UKFCMC), and supported by Experian and PKF Littlejohn, the report is based on research by University of Portsmouth’s Centre for Counter Fraud Studies. It found that the overall annual cost of fraud in the UK could be as high as £193bn per year.It found that fraud in the third sector cost around £1.9bn a year in 2013-14, and notes that this includes all registered charities and not just voluntary and aid organisations.The biggest source of fraud for third sector organisations relates to procurement, accounting for an estimated annual £776m of losses in the sector.In addition to procurement fraud, the biggest types of fraud impacting UK charities in 2013-14 identified by the Annual Fraud Indicator are:Payroll fraud, which accounted for losses of £886mGrant fraud, which accounted for £196m of lossesBetween 2006-13, mass marketing fraud, accounted for 3,563m.Jim Gee, chair of the UK Fraud Cost Measurement Committee and head of Forensic Counter Fraud Services at PKF Littlejohn, said:“Fraud has a pernicious social and economic impact on the UK. Private sector companies are less financially stable and healthy than they would otherwise be; public sector organisations cannot provide the quality of public services that we pay our taxes to get; and charities are deprived of the full value of the donations we make. The best way to reduce its extent and cost is to make sure our organisations are fraud resilient and able to protect themselves against a continually evolving threat.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20 66 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20 65 total views, 1 views today Cost of fraud for UK charities reaches £2bn a year

March 20, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Court upholds five-year jail sentence for well-known writer April 28, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders is appalled by a Riyadh court’s decision to uphold the five-year jail sentence that Mukhlif Al-Shammari, a well-known writer and activist, received last June for the articles he has written and, in particular, for a video he posted on YouTube in which two girls described being mistreated.The sentence was imposed on 17 June 2013 by a Jeddah court that specializes in national security and terrorism cases and was upheld by a Riyadh criminal court on 4 March. Shammari has said he will appeal against the latest decision.Shammari stands convicted of trying to discredit the reputation of kingdom in the eyes of domestic and international public opinion, insulting the clergy and inciting divisions within the people.As well as five years in prison, the sentence includes a ban on writing for newspapers or websites or appearing in the media, and a ten-year ban on travelling abroad.“The Saudi authorities are trying by every means possible to silence the few people who dare to speak out and criticize the regime’s failings,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This sentence is striking example of the zero tolerance policy applied to those regarded as dissidents. We call on the authorities to overturn this decision and to abandon all proceedings against Shammari.”Shammari has been the target of previous prosecutions and was arrested on 15 June 2010 for articles posted on the Saudiyoon and Rasid news websites criticizing political and religious leaders.

Our proposals set out the building block that need to be put in place in the budget to create an environment within which young farmers can establish themselves in the industry and have a successful career.The main points of the submission are:· The extension of young farmer stamp duty relief on purchases of land up to 40 years of age and the increase in the Capital Acquisition Tax threshold that farmers can receive as gift or inheritance is also being sought to reflect increasing property values and to encourage the early transfer of farms.· For income tax relief, Macra are seeking greater flexibility in the implementation of the 100% young farmer Stock Relief to reflect farm development and growth plans of young farmers. An extension of the land leasing tax incentive to include parent and children for one term of seven years is also being proposed.· To help support female farmers Macra is proposing the introduction of aid to cover the cost of replacement labour during maternity leave.· To aid competitiveness in the sector the organisation is calling for the introduction of a fund to encourage young farmers to engage in better grass utilisation, a key target in the Food Wise 2025 report. Future amendments to the Rural Development Program should include a focus on supporting grazing infrastructure under the TAMS scheme.· Income volatility is a major issue and Macra has lobbied for a number of years for a measure to encourage farmers to put away some income in a good year and have access to this money in a tax efficient manor in a year of poor returns. Volatility is one of the biggest issues facing all farmers and the government needs to look at introducing an effective mechanism to tackle the damaging effects of volatility on farmers.· On access to credit for young farmers Macra is seeking the introduction of funding from the European Investment Bank which is available to member states to access through the Rural Development Program.· Agricultural education, advisory and research are essential support mechanisms for young farmers and these need to be further supported.· For the development of rural youth who are the engine for growth and development in rural areas, Macra is calling for various measures including adequately financial resources to be provided in this budget for the provision of youth mental health services. There are also a number of measures that remain to be implemented and adequately funded under the report by the Commission for the Economic Development of Rural Area including the provision of quality high speed broadband to all rural areas.· Finally an increase in the investment in youth work through the Youth Services Grant Scheme is essential for Macra to provide services to help train and develop rural youth in leadership and personal development.

A division bench of Justices JJ Shinde and Manish Pitale asked for status reports after it was informed that the trial in journalist Gauri Lankesh’s 2017 murder, in Karnataka, with a similar set of accused, has already begun but the investigation is still not complete, in Maharashtra. “One day there has to be an end to this. This is a 2013 incident; we are in 2021. We are disturbed by the petitioner’s statement that the trial has already begun in Karnataka, but here the investigation is not even complete. The incident in Karnataka is after this.” The HC is monitoring the investigation into the murders of Dabholkar on August 20, 2013, and CPI leader Govind Pansare on February 20, 2015, on a clutch of petitions by their families. The case was heard last in February 2020 by a bench headed by Justice SC Dharmadhikari. During the hearing on Friday, Additional Solicitor General, Anil Singh, submitted that the CBI has been filing status reports on Dabholkar’s murder from time to time. “This matter has come up suddenly, we will file a report.” “It has been specially assigned to us. What is progress?” Justice Shinde asked. Advocate Abhay Nevagi appearing for the families of the slain activists said that there are four murders Dabholkar, Pansare, renowned epigraphist MM Kalburgi and journalist Gauri Lankesh. Kalburgi was shot dead on August 30, 2015, while Lankesh was assassinated on September 5, 2017. Nevagi submitted that it was the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) that found a link in all four cases. And while the CBI had filed three charge sheets against the four accused in the Dabholkar case, the SIT has made no headway in Pansare’s case. AGS said that in their case five arrests were made and one person is on bail. “This case is coming for the first time before us but this is an old incident.” Justice Shinde observed. Nevagi then informed the court that the Karnataka cases had made progress and the trial had already begun in Gauri Lankesh’s case. Nevagi later clarified that the discharge pleas of certain accused were rejected and the prosecutor was in the process of submitting draft charges to the court. “Citizens must know that in such a sensitive case, when will the investigation and trial be completed. We are not creating aspersions on the investigation but still.” Justice Shinde said. The Court then posted the matter for hearing on March 30 with a specific direction to the State and CBI to come with a positive statement.
