This organized crime that own this gambling shops put all the poorer citizens in their vicious circles, and the all this poorer citizens with their hope in their mind that they will win something spend all their money in there.

And in direct violation of the law are the vast majority of bookmakers and electronic games that operate in Kosovo today.
We are expecting that all the illegal bookmakers and illegal seuzure of apparatus have to finish no later then 30 days from today. If ATK does not begin to enforce the law and repair the anarchic situation, pulling all the licenses illegally, we will be forced to raise charges against this institution, and for that we are already ready, “said Hoxha.
