Belgium grills bwin co-chief

BWIN’S co-chief executive was yesterday questioned by Belgian gambling authorities over the firm’s activities in the country.

Norbert Teufelberger was speaking at a gaming conference in Brussels when officers from the Belgian gambling commission approached him.

Bwin is disputing an internet block on its Belgian operations, which is costing the company £560,000 a month in revenues.

Belgium only allows firms with offline licences to operate, a policy bwin says conflicts with EU law.
