Petter Nylander was arrested at Schiphol airport after French authorities issued a warrant for his arrest for breaking French gambling laws and sponsoring a team in the Tour de France.
The French say Unibet’s gambling website is illegal because, just like Sweden, France has a gambling monopoly and independent bookmakers aren’t allowed. The cycling sponsorship was seen as advertising for the website, which is also illegal.
But a French Court decided to release Nylander on bail for 200 000 Euros Wednesday night. When he is due back in the French Court hasn’t yet been decided.
