Casino Tropez Issues Statement on Museum Shooting

June 17, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — Casino Tropez has issued an official statement condemning the recent shooting at the Washington, D.C. Holocaust Memorial Museum. The statement was made in response to the fact that the shooter allegedly had banner ads for the casino displayed on his website.  

"Casino Tropez in no way condones the extremist views or violent actions taken by Mr. von Brunn, who has been charged with shooting and killing Holocaust Museum security guard Steven Johns, on June 10th, 2009,” the statement reads.  “Our brand's exclusive promoter, Euro Partners, was not aware of the Casino Tropez banner being advertised on Mr. von Brunn's site, as it was obtained through a third party network.  In accordance with the U.S. Federal Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Act, Euro Partners stringently refrains from promoting any of its brands through U.S.-facing websites, such as Mr. von Brunn's.  Furthermore, Euro Partners terms of use clearly state that the endorsement of their brands alongside offensive or illegal materials is strictly prohibited."

A representative for Euro Partners added: "Euro Partners is the world's largest e-Gaming affiliate program, working in association with thousands of affiliate partners.  Considering the nature of the Internet, it is possible for individuals not affiliated with the program to use our marketing materials in a manner that violates the policies we endorse and it is beyond our control to monitor all online activity in relation to our brands.

“Euro Partners does not support any views held by Mr. Von Brunn and sends their condolences to the family of security guard Stephen Tyrone Johns who lost his life because of these hateful actions.”
