Match fixing scandal tarnishes Singapore’s spots


Singapore is at the epicentre of a global match fixing scandal. A Europol five-country investigation has linked 380 suspicious matches involving players, referees and officials all over the world to a Singaporean crime syndicate. The city state authorities, known for their relentless enforcement of draconic regulations in Singapore, have given their full support to the international investigation. Europol believes the syndicate has rigged hundreds of games, including Champions League matches and World Cup qualifiers.
