Gambling advertising to be banned in Georgia

2013-03-06 13:46

Georgian authorities intend to introduce a 10,000 lari fine (about $ 6 thousand) for the advertising of gambling. Appropriate amendments to the Code of Administrative Violations were considered by the parliament on Tuesday, the News-Georgia reported.


"The main purpose of the bill is to ban advertising of lotteries, gambling and premium bonds, as well as the introduction of penalties for customers, manufacturers and distributors in the event of violations", said the authors of the bill.

The bill was submitted by the MP from the "Georgian Dream" Koba Davitashvili. The amendments were developed with the participation of the NGO "National-Religious Institution".

Recall, in late December, it was reported that gambling industry in Georgia would not be restricted. This was stated by the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of the country George Kvirikashvili. He noted that at present the Government of Georgia was working on the draft amendments to the gambling legislation, but they won't imply ban for the legal institutions.

Earlier, in mid-October, during pre-election campaign, Bidzina Ivanishvili, now the Prime Minister of Georgia, stated he intended to close all casinos and brothels in the resort town of Batumi.
