Gambling operator Optibet has challenged the decision of the Latvian parliament (Saeima) to ban online gambling in the Latvian Constitutional Court.

“With this decision, legitimate business was eliminated while illegal operators do not comply with any restrictions,” Dainis Niedra, Head of Optibet in the Baltic States, said.

In his opinion, the decision to ban online gambling has nothing to do with the fight and threats to the population of Latvia related to the pandemic, which means that it does not meet the declared goals.

It is worth mentioning, that on March 20, the Latvian parliament supported the government’s proposal to close gambling halls and ban online gambling during the pandemic.
