Money laundering is the process by which illegally obtained assets are smuggled into the legal economic cycle and removed from the reach of the law enforcement authorities.
For this reason, the Money Laundering Act imposes specific obligations on representatives of certain professional groups, which are intended to help prevent money laundering or the misuse of reputable companies for money laundering purposes. This also includes the Bavarian casinos.
If you have information on possible or actual violations of the Money Laundering Act (such as: a company does not identify its contractual partners), you can report this to the responsible supervisory authority as a personalized or anonymous tip-off.
Whistleblowers can make valuable contributions to uncovering the misconduct of individuals or entire companies and to containing or correcting the negative consequences of this misconduct.
Whistleblowers represent an important source of knowledge for the supervisory authority over Bavarian casinos. Such tips may include confidential information that whistleblowers learn from their employment relationships or from other contractual or trust relationships and that they bring to the attention of the responsible supervisory authority.
The relevant supervisory authority will investigate each tip and determine whether there has been a breach of regulatory requirements. The supervisory authority protects your identity by offering you the opportunity to submit your information anonymously via an electronic whistleblowing system.
The Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior, Sports and Integration is responsible for receiving tips.
