In Latvia, the New Conservative Party on the Manabalss.lv portal has initiated a collection of signatures for the ban on the operation of gambling establishments throughout the country, except for VIP hotels. This petition has already been signed by more than 10 Latvian citizens and will soon be considered by the Seimas of Latvia.
“A terrible disease called gambling has seized Latvia. Everyone knows about this disease, but no one does anything. From this disease people become poorer and die, many families are destroyed, Latvia is dying from this disease. This madness must be stopped as soon as possible and put into the strict framework of the law, the petition says.
The authors of the petition propose to make significant amendments to the law on gambling, which is currently in force in Latvia, which will prohibit the opening of gambling establishments throughout the country, except for luxury hotels.
