Malta’s compliance issues – MGA executive James Grech and his private ventures
Another issue in Malta's long list of regulatory compliance incidents came up. Malta is a popular place for gambling licenses issued and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA). But like MFSA, MGA has serious issues with itself. It turned out that its Chief Officer Internal Audit James Grech was working on private business while in office, raising conflict of interest concerns, our sources say. He was providing LEAD Training Services in anti-money laundering, MLRO, internal auditing, and other gaming-related topics. Malta, for sure, has a big problem with its regulators and war grey-listed for good reasons!
