Antigua & Barbuda Claim Victory in Online Casino Fight
Antigua and Barbuda, one of
the world’s smallest states, proclaimed victory on Wednesday in a case
it brought against the U.S. ban on cross-border Internet gaming.
The World Trade Organization (WTO) has ruled in favor of Antigua and
Barbuda (ad interim) in a free trade dispute concerning the de facto
prohibition of online gambling by the US. "This is justice done and a
victory for the WTO dispute system …the U.S. is under an obligation to
repeal their laws" said Sir Ronald Sanders, Antigua’s ambassador to the
WTO. Online casinos all over the world welcomed the WTO’s ruling.
Antigua lost 89 gaming businesses, 4,000 jobs and $90 million in tax
revenues, as a result of the US policies. Relative to the overall size
of the Antiguan economy, this loss can only be described as disastrous.
