Bwin Co-CEO Norbert Teufelberger was finally released from Belgian authorities after he was taken into custody yesterday for questioning.
Bwin came back swinging, claiming that laws restricting foreign-based gambling operators are not in line with European Union law.
Tuefelberger was credited for being graceful during the situation and the police said he had been arrested, but Bwin.party said Teufelberger “voluntarily conformed with a request to speak with the authorities.”
At one point he did ask authorities as to why he was being questioned. They explained to him that a letter was sent to Bwin’s head office advising them as to why he was going to be detained.
Bwin still has time on their hands, as a full explanation must be submitted on their behalf about the legality of the company’s operations in the country, which is due on December 17.
