Monday December 1,2014 : P.M.U. JOINS SPORTS INTEGRITY BODY
French betting company joins the ranks of operators committed to combatting corruption in sport.
The European Sports Security Association (ESSA) has announced that the major French online and land gambling group Pari Mutuel Urbain (PMU) has joined its ranks and will take part in its efforts to eliminate corruption in international sport.
ESSA secretary general Khalid Ali said that the capability of his organisation in providing intelligence on irregular or suspicious betting activity is considerably enhanced by PMU's membership.
Pierre Pages, PMU general secretary, said: “We are constantly aware of the need for all of sport’s stakeholders to work together to combat match-fixing. We believe that ESSA, with its excellent links not only with sports governing bodies but also regulators and other intelligence units, is the correct platform to coordinate this effort.”
