MOSCOW, November 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Yandex has blocked the access to an online casino by demand of the prosecutors.
“The Omsk Leninsky district prosecutor’s office has revealed that a commercial company organized online gambling via narod.ru resource of Yandex,” a source at the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Clients were given the access to an online casino and offered to put money on an online account via the club’s cash office. Money from the online account was used to make stakes,” he said.
However, the law forbids gambling with the use of telecommunication networks and the Internet.
“The Omsk Regional Arbitration Court ordered an administrative fine to be levied on the commercial company by demand of the Omsk Leninsky district prosecutor. Besides, the Omsk regional prosecutor’s office sent a memo to the Yandex general director indicating to the need to block the online casino operating on the narod.ru portal. The resource was blocked in November,” the source said.
