The Almaly District Court granted the petition of the Almaty prosecutor to confiscate the property of the OLIMP KZ betting company. The leaders of the bookmaker’s office have been put on the international wanted list. They are suspected of organizing a criminal scheme for illegal gambling, money laundering and tax evasion under the guise of betting. OLIMP KZ was suspected of tax evasion in January 2014, but the investigation against the bookmaker began only in December 2019. As a result of the criminal case, 3.6 billion tenge, four aircraft and three cars were seized from the state. The court ruled that this property of the bookmaker’s office was obtained by criminal means. Earlier, the authorities of Kazakhstan obliged operators of the gambling industry to develop and implement methods of treating addiction to gambling.
