Prohibition Mission in Argentina?

13 October 2008

A second bill unfriendly to Internet gambling has reportedly been proposed in Argentina's Santa Fe Province, following a similar bill that was introduced last week in the province of Buenos Aires.

According to a report El Protagonista, a local newspaper, Luis Alberto Mauri, who is a member the Santa Fe provincial government's lower house, has introduced an amendment to the Code of Offenses that would punish Internet service providers who do not block access to online gambling sites in the province.

Mr. Mauri and his two co-sponsors for the bill, Estela Mendez De Micheli and Gabriel Real, are all members of the Civic and Social Progressive Front.

Last week, Liliana Piani, a provincial deputy in Buenos Aires Province's lower house, proposed a law that would force telecommunications providers to block access to Web sites that offer gambling.

IGamingNews has been unable confirm the introduction of the second piece of legislation, but will follow up as more information becomes available.
