On Thursday, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) announced a date for a public hearing concerning the license application submitted by Full Tilt Poker subsidiary Orinic Limited. The hearing will be held in the Braye Beach Hotel in Alderney on Thursday, May 3 at 14:00 local time.
Orinic Limited applied for a Category 2 online gambling license with the AGCC on March 23, 2012. The FTP subsidiary previously owned a Category 1 license with the AGCC but it was suspended for six months when the AGCC revoked Full Tilt's license last September. Orinic was able to avoid a license revocation because it hadn't hosted any games and was not in violation of any AGCC regulations.
The six-month suspension ended on March 23, the date on which Orinic applied for the new license.
The AGCC announcement stated the following:
In the matter of an application by Orinic Limited for a Category 2 eGambling licence, take notice that the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, pursuant to Section 4 of the Alderney eGambling Ordinance, 2009 and Regulation 23 of the Alderney eGambling Regulations, 2009, will hold a public hearing at which oral representations may be made.
