So many money wanted Police to confiscate from JP/Politikens Hus, because they believed that the Extra Magazine has violated the law in connection with a number of spilannoncer.
It will however not happen.
on Friday upheld The high Court order byrettens decision that the case should be routed.
- the high Court has now given a totally clear rejection of the cases against Bent Falbert, Poul Madsen and JP/Politikens Hus. We go out from the prosecutor's office after 15 years to have pursued this case with an enormous waste of resources to follow, to acknowledge the courts decision. Everything else would be shameless, says Stig Ørskov, ceo of JP/Politikens Hus.
The yearlong investigation has been going on, because the Extra Leaf is alleged to have placed advertisements for various gaming companies without authorization from the ministry of finance.
In this connection, would the Police have both the JP/Politiken Hus - the Extra Magazine is owned by - and the newspaper's two editors-in-chief in the period 2003-2011, Bent Falbert and Poul Madsen, to a fine.
The slightly over 415 million would correspond to gross margins in the period.
JP/Politikens Hus has throughout denied the guilty, and the group has drawn up the EU. EU rules dictate that the services have freedom of movement, and that businesses have the right to establish themselves across national borders.
the Danish legislation has, in turn, secured the Danske spil monopoly on the gambling market.
- of course We are happy that common sense finally prevailed, says Extra the Magazine's editor-in-chief, Poul Madsen.
the district Court and The high Court has thus concluded that the prohibition against spilannoncer should have been indberrettet to the EU. It did not happen, and therefore, there has not been the basis of the cases against the two editors-in-chief and the group.
