BetonSports founder arrested

Bookie booked

The smart choice: opportunity from uncertainty

Gary Kaplan, the founder of BetonSports.com was arrested late last week in the Dominican Republic.

Kaplan was charged with 20 felony offences in July last year. Other members of BetonSports' management - like chief executive David Carruthers - have already been in court. Carruthers was caught at Dallas airport on his way to company headquarters in Costa Rica. He is currently awaiting trial.

Last week, following a worldwide search, Kaplan was caught at a hotel in Santo Domingo by Dominican police, officials from the US State Department, and the FBI, according to AP.

He is expected to be returned to St Louis for trial.

Kaplan left BetonSports some time ago and was rumoured to be hiding out anywhere from Israel to South America.

The US unilateral ban on gambling suffered a blow last week. On Friday the World Trade Organisation (WTO), in a case brought by Antigua, again ruled the US ban was in breach of international law. The WTO wants any ban on gambling websites to apply to US and non-US firms equally. ®
