Singapore cooperating with international sports betting probe


Singapore is to send police officers to Europe to help with the probe into the international football match-fixing syndicate.   The city-state has come under pressure to show it is doing more to tackle sports betting crime allegedly masterminded from Asia.  Singapore’s move was welcomed by Ralf Mutschke, FIFA’s current head of security, as well as Ron Noble, Interpol’s secretary general, who called for an end to “finger pointing”.  Interpol and the Asian Football Federation held a two-day seminar in Kuala Lumpur on match fixing this week.
