Отворено писмо на БТАПОИИ

Във връзка с предложенията за два новизаконопроекта за изменение на Закона за хазарта, ние от Българската Търговска Асоциация на Производителите и Организаторите от Игралната Индустрия изразяваме своите съображения, които отразихме в отворено писмо, приложено към настоящия мейл.
Считаме, че практиката да се внасят в парламента законопроекти без да бъдат подложени на предварително обсъждане със сектора не е в интерес на всички участващи страни.

Individuals who enable or promote the use of illegal online gambling sites in Turkey could, according to the terms set out in the draft law, face prison sentences of several years.
