Customer Question

I am former PokerStars SEO Manager, during my employment I have discovered facts of PokerStars performing illegal operations: such are Operation of Illegal Gambling Business, Money Laundering and Illegal Marketing activities.
I have published some facts about PokerStars illegal actions online and now PS I trying to sue me.
PS solicitors saying that PS do not perform illegal activities.
I have provided an evidence that buying links in Switzerland in order to promote gambling website is illegal and I quoted:
” Organising online games of chance is illegal (Article 5 FGA). Moreover, each and every activity, which supports funds or simply facilitates online gambling, is illegal. The prohibition in Article 5 FGA typically includes online casinos, i.e. cash games of chance offered online. Depending on the specific circumstances of the individual case, the following activities have been prosecuted or are deemed illegal by the SFGB:
• operation of a gaming server;
• processing certain financial transactions in connection with online gambling;
• advertising or marketing for online games (also hypertext linking); and
• management and/or financing of online gambling.
This means that both operators as well as suppliers may be prosecuted. However, participation in online games of chance is not illegal. Thus Swiss players do not need to fear sanctions. Furthermore, and according to prevailing legal doctrine, the mere accessibility of a foreign online service in Switzerland does not qualify as an activity on Swiss territory and the Swiss gambling prohibition does not apply. Finally, but subject to certain restrictions to be assessed in each individual case, it is legal for an international online gaming operator to set up its corporate headquarters in Switzerland to consolidate its operations and/or to organise all its group internal financial transactions to be undertaken by Swiss banks.”
How to prove to the court that PS was performing illegal marketing activities in Switzerland?
I do have a link which PS bought, price and other details of unlawful transaction, I cannot post it here, court is restricted me to publish any evidence of PokerStars crimes.

Alex,

I am not sure what you referring to, but if you are asking if it is true that I have discovered illegal activities of PokerStars. It is true and now they are trying to lock me up in order to hide evidence of their wrongdoing.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
What have they said?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Commercial, confidential information un authorized publication, which could lead to 100 of thousands to millions pounds in loses.

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Have they actually said that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

words are not identical, I have rephrased them, but meaning is correct. PokerStars already experienced situation where as result of their criminal activities they had to pay 500 millions in settlement ( United States v. Scheinberg) and now Italy with 300 millions tax fraud. So information which I have could lead to serious legal problems for PS. This is why they are trying to destroy me in every possible way.

Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Ok. So they have said to you what? Have you had a Solicitor letter?
