Online Casinos in general: Summons from the criminal investigation department for involvement in illegal gambling

Hello friends,

I recently received a summons from the police (not the public prosecutor's office) regarding a violation of §285.
I am being investigated for involvement in unauthorized gambling.

I have been asked by the criminal investigation department to present myself at the police station in the next few days to make a statement.

The letter does not say when the offense was committed.

I am also employed in the public sector, which means that I could lose my job if the charges against me are not dropped.

I've read that many such cases have been dropped, but I just don't know what to do. I'm pretty overwhelmed by the situation, as I could lose everything.

I hope you can tell me about this situation from your own experience and give me some advice.

Yours sincerely

with all due respect... but why ask such an important question in a gambling forum, where there are probably 10 answers and each one says something different?


i mean, yes, you can ask questions here, but i wouldn't rely on the statements, for the sole reason that probably every 2nd person here writes something different


why don't you contact a lawyer right away and maybe look for someone who has experience in this area, i think he can help you best and knows for sure what to do in such a case......

I've already written to a lawyer, but I still have to wait because it's a public holiday.


How else can I find someone who knows about this issue?

Have a look here. You'll find everything on the subject there. This has been discussed here several times. Top rule: Do not comply with the police summons.
