    Default French authorities want to question former 888.com CEO

    The Buzz received this in his e-mail inbox earlier today. Looks like French authorities might be following the U.S. crackdown route...

    888 Holdings plc - Re: Press Speculation


    RNS Number:9172R
    888 Holdings plc
    27 February 2007


    888 Holdings Public Limited Company
    ('888' or the 'Company')

    Re: Press Speculation

    888 is aware of potential press speculation with regard to its French activities.

    888 confirms that its non-executive director and former Chief Executive Officer, John Anderson, has been asked to attend an interview with the French authorities.

    888 is in consultation with its legal advisers with regards to this inquiry and further announcements will be made in due course if appropriate.

    Revenue and income from French customers represents an immaterial percentage of the Company's business.

    It looks like 888 had been sponsoring a soccer team in France, but they stopped doing that recently because of new French laws regarding gambling advertising. 888.com shares have also fallen 9%.
