Antonio Abdilla Zerafa International Forum for Sports Integrity

Sports Betting Integrity Manager within the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), Antonio Abdilla Zerafa, was invited to speak at the International Olympic Committee’s International Forum for Sports Integrity earlier this month.

Along with industry experts, Dr Abdilla Zerafa discussed future actions for strengthening the prevention of manipulation of competitions.

“In order to endorse a culture of cooperation, the notion of ‘information sharing’ needs to take centre stage; and any related issues can be alleviated with the right attitudes and mechanisms in place,” he said while speaking at the part-virtual, part-in-person event.

The fourth iteration was held in the city of Lausanne, Switzerland, where the main focus was anti-corruption efforts through the International Partnership Against Corruption in Sports (IPACS) and the prevention of competition manipulation.

Taking to social media to reflect on his participation, Dr Abdilla Zerafa said it is “always an honour to represent the Malta Gaming Authority”, adding that he is “well pleased of having the opportunity to speak about the MGA’s efforts in fighting financial crimes across the sports betting sector via the collective effort of the regulated Maltese gaming sector”.

Highlighted the work of his colleagues, saying that while he was the only one physically present, he was only “advocating the hard work and dedication of [his] team whom [he] is extremely proud of.

“Sincere thanks go to the Olympic Committee for the invitation and for continuing to be a leader in the fight against corruption in sports.”
