Postings in relation to ‘race-fixing’ trial
Betfair Customer Services 09 Oct 10:39
Whilst the criminal trial involving 3 jockeys and others is sub judice (i.e. being considered in court), comment on the case is inappropriate and could even be an offence in itself leading to contempt of court proceeding against those commenting. This is particularly true given the criminal charges being considered where publicly discussing such cases sub judice may constitute interference with due process (not least because jurors may be exposed to such public discussion).
As a consequence whilst this matter remains sub judice, forum postings discussing the matter will be removed as and when they come to Betfair’s attention. This also means we will have to revoke forum posting rights of customers who persist in commenting on the case on Betfair’s forums.
BetFair traders, come on Midas Oracle to post your comments on the Fallon case. Here, we do not censor anyone.
UPDATE: They talk about the Fallon case in the Chamber of Lords. (See next page.)
