EU Trade Commissioner says investigation complete and report will be released this week

The Obama Administration's new US Trade Representative at the World Trade Organisation, Ron Kirk will be under some pressure this week as the European Commission releases its report following an investigation into the discriminatory practices of US law enforcement in prosecuting European companies and individuals for alleged online gambling offences.

The investigation, carried out after complaints to the EC by mainly British online gambling companies belonging to the Remote Gambling Association, has been ongoing for some months and follows US unilateral actions that have seen the country shed credibility after losing several WTO disputes with Antigua and Barbuda. Among the elements studied in the US ban was the apparently inequitable and discriminatory nature of US legislation, and actions taken against Euopean companies but not US counterparts.

EU Trade Commissioner Catherine Ashton told reporters in Washington that the European Commission would release this week the long-awaited results of its investigation into whether U.S. enforcement of a ban on Internet gambling violated WTO rules.
