IBAS NOTIFIED OF DESTRUCTION OF EVIDENCE
BY BETFAIR IN TRUMP BET DISPUTE
Attn: Mr. Richard Hayler, IBAS Managing Director
Attn: IBAS Adjudication Panel Members
I am Fintan Dunne -a customer of Betfair who is in dispute over the US Next President betting market. (Betfair Dispute Ref: XXX-XXXX) I will shortly submit to IBAS a detailed file laying out my complaint. I am not challenging the outcome -but rather the timing of the market settlement.
Meanwhile I am requesting that you investigate the destruction by Betfair of vital evidence at the heart of their dispute with customers such as I who had backed Trump to be the next President of the USA. The evidence in question undermines Betfair's justification of their closure of that market in mid-December, 2020.
Proof of the destruction can be reviewed at the following web links:
The links detail how Betfair deleted a Tweet by their customer services team which gave guidance on the timing of the settlement. That tweet assured the public that the market would remain open for some weeks. It was issued by Betfair customer service team just hours before they closed the market -contrary to their own just-issued advice.
Despite the tweet being deleted by Betfair, it has been recovered from an independent internet archive service. The deleted tweet advice read as follows:

Hi there. Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. The markets will remain open for trading until we can settle on certainty. There are electoral events that are still to take place within the coming month before there is certainty on the matter 🗣Radina

In the interests of justice and fair process I am asking that IBAS institute a full investigation into this issue to establish the facts; to determine the scale of the problem; to help secure all relevant evidential materials electronic and audio; and to ensure that the IBAS adjudication panel can fairly execute it's resolution process.
