Rumours abound on senior executive's firing

Online and land gambling group Ladbrokes told The Telegraph newspaper Wednesday that its dismissal of former Bodog and senior liabilities exec Jon Thompson (see previous reports) was an internal procedural matter and was not being pursued criminally.

The head of liabilities for Ladbrokes, Thompson's responsibilities included overseeing Ladbrokes' betting odds, the newspaper reported, noting that he was dismissed on charges of internal misconduct, raising questions in the City over the bookmaker's structure.

Thompson had been at Ladbrokes for just over a year after joining from online bookie Bodog. He has several weeks to appeal the decision, which has also seen another member of staff suspended pending an internal investigation.

Ladbrokes would not disclose the circumstances around Thompson's departure but senior betting industry sources told The Telegraph that there had been rumours for some time about his proximity to several of the company's biggest punters.
