ONLINE POKER SITE GRANTED ORDER AGAINST BOSS MEDIA (Update)
Poker Trillion succeeds in freezing Boss bank accounts
The dispute between online poker website Poker Trillion and its former network operated by Swedish Internet gambling provider Boss Media (see previous InfoPowa reports) has resulted in the award of a garnishee (or freezing) order on the bank accounts of Boss Holdings Limited and Boss Media Malta Poker Ltd.
The application, number 532-08, was heard in the First Hall Civil Court, Malta, and the order has been executed at all seven banks in Malta where the Boss Media companies hold bank accounts.
PokerTrillion.com C.E.O Andy Pyrah had earlier commented: "As a small and new entrant to the market we are taking a zero tolerance approach to being mistreated by Boss Media" in a statement on the dispute.
The order relates to a Euro 45 million initial law suit instigated by PokerTrillion.com against Boss Media and its associated companies in various jurisdictions, including but not restricted to, Sweden and Malta.
