Rumors Abound On Senior Executive's Dismissal

Thompson dismissal not a criminal matter, says Ladbrokes

Online and land gambling group Ladbrokes stated that its dismissal of Jon Thompson, former Bodog and senior liabilities executive, was an internal procedural matter, not criminally pursued.

Thompson, who was at Ladbrokes for just over a year after joining from online bookie Bodog, as the head of liabilities for Ladbrokes was overseeing their betting odds. He was dismissed on charges of internal misconduct, raising questions in the City over the bookmaker's structure.

He has several weeks to appeal the decision, which has also seen another member of staff suspended pending an internal investigation.

Though Ladbrokes would not disclose the circumstances around Thompson's departure, senior betting industry sources rely on rumours about his proximity to several of the company's biggest punters.
