Nationwide lottery candidate responds to Austrian scandal
Sidlo, who had no on line casino expertise and was not a certified accountant, was employed alongside fellow Komarek board member Martin Skopek and former CFO Bettina Glatz-Kremsner of Casinos Austria, in a three-person administration workforce.
Inside weeks, Sidlo’s appointment was the topic of a felony investigation entitled “Casinos Affair”. Addresses linked to Graf and Harald Neumann, the chairman of Novomatic, have been raided by police in August 2019 over allegations that Sidlo’s appointment was organized in change for political favors, in line with studies.
Novomatic has at all times denied any wrongdoing, insisting that it doesn’t have the ability to individually appoint Casinos Austria board members.
Sidlo was sacked in December 2019 for “critical breach of his obligations” because the scandal escalated. He sued Casinos Austria for unfair dismissal in January 2020. The case is ongoing. However now, proof has been leaked, supplied to the political inquiry by Walter Rothensteiner, the chairman of Casinos Austria, and seen by The telegraph, sheds new gentle on the function of Sazka.
The paperwork reveal that Sazka lobbied for a sequence of circumstances to be hooked up to the institution of Casinos Austria’s administration construction.
