    Default Antiguan Support

    I just received this in my email. WTG Intertops!

    Mojo

    Dear Intertops.com Customers,

    The following email is being sent to you as a courtesy to the Antigua Online Gambling Association. Intertops.com has been licensed in Antigua and Barbuda for over 10 years - a Tier 1 jurisdiction of choice with first rate regulatory enforcement.

    As you may be aware, online gambling has been under attack by the United States for the last decade. The Government of Antigua and Barbuda has successfully challenged the malicious prosecution of Antiguan operators in the World Trade Organization. The WTO has found that the US's application of its laws against Antiguan entities is protectionist and in violation of the General Agreement on Trade in Services.

    Now that Antigua has won the legal battle, it can use political support in Congress. Here's how you can help. Please email and phone your representative in the House of Representatives and your two Senators. Remind them that the United States needs to abide by the decision in the Antigua-Gambling matter if it expects other countries to comply with WTO decisions in favor of the United States.

    Here is a link to a letter to the USTR from Representative Ros-Lehtinen, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs:

    http://www.antiguawto.com/LettertoUSTR.pdf

    Rep. Ros-Lehtinen eloquently noted, "...our failure to resolve this dispute may harm our credibility as we seek to press countries like China regarding their violations on a range of issues, including intellectual property protection, subsidies, and currency manipulation." She further warned, "In the event the United States fails to reach a satisfactory resolution of the Antigua dispute, it could provide China with an argument to ignore a WTO decision favorable to the United States."

    Please send the link above to your Representative and Senators. Ask them to send similar letters to the United States Trade Representative. Let them know you vote, you pay taxes, and you think the United States should comply with the decision in the Antigua-Gambling matter.

    To contact your Representative and two Senators, follow the links below or call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and give them your zip code. Make sure you call three times.

    http://www.senate.gov/

    We will continue to fight the legal battle, please help us with the political fight.

    Thank you,

    Antigua Online Gambling Association & Intertops.com
