UTS in violation Lottery Regulation 1909

lotteryWILLEMSTAD - United Telecommunication Services (UTS) has violated the Lottery Regulation 1909. All stakeholders, including the management of UTS, made themselves guilty of this offense. UTS helped with the sale of SMS tickets using the draw of Wega di Number Kòrsou (Curacao Lottery).

Fundashion Wega di Number Kòrsou (Curacao Lottery Foundation) draws this conclusion in a memorandum from February 2011. Last week, the murdered leader of the political party Helmin Wiels, wrote a letter to the Public Prosecutor about this case. There are strict rules attached to the sales of lottery of Wega di Number Korsou. Sales must be reported and this was not happening which means that the lottery offices were not paying sales tax.

Fundashion Wega di Number Kòrsou has repeatedly insisted in 2010 and 2011 on addressing this issue with the then Minister of Justice Elmer Wilsoe. According to the organization, the Ministry of Justice is in charge with the investigation with the help of the police.
