er director-general of the UK national crime agency (NCA), Keith Bristow, has been appointed as chairman of the new UK Gambling Anti-Laundering Group (GAMLG).

Formed in January, the group’s aim is to prevent money laundering schemes in the gaming industry, using the guidelines set out by The Gambling Commission.

“Criminals use a range of dishonest methods to launder their criminal profits including gambling which can provide a credible explanation for a source of wealth,” Bristow said.

“As Chair of the GAMLG, I will work constructively with the industry to continue to drive up standards and, when necessary, robustly challenge current policy and practice.

“By making it even more difficult for criminals to exploit the gambling industry, we will make a real contribution to the protection of UK businesses and communities.”

The GAMLG team consists of members from the Remote Gambling Association (RGA) and the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB).
