    Default Dutch minister to act on illegal gambling sites

    Justice minster Ernst Hirsch Ballin says that he will target internet gambling sites that target Dutch consumers.


    Internet gambling sites which target Dutch consumers and have so far refused to shut down their operations now face legal action, justice minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has told MPs.

    A justice ministry spokesman declined to tell news agency ANP how many sites are being targeted, but confirmed that both Dutch-based and foreign companies are involved.

    Under Dutch law, firms must have a permit to offer online gambling. All gambling in the Netherlands is in the hands of the state.

    Hirsch Ballin is also planning to warn banks that they are breaking the law if they have illegal gambling sites as customers, ANP says. 'We are talking about the bigger banks operating in the Netherlands,' the spokesman told ANP.

    Any affiliates being contacted by the Dutch state?

    I have both a poker and a casino site targeting the Dutch audience but I have heard nothing.
