Tan ‘assists’ police with soccer probe

 

Dan Tan Seet Eng, the Singaporean seen at the center of a global soccer match-fixing ring, is “currently assisting the Singapore authorities in their investigations”, according to a statement by police. Tan was charged in absentia in Hungary last week. Singapore said it had asked Hungary for approval to interview a witness and for more information and said a German police team had visited Singapore in early May to exchange information. Hungary has also charged 44 of its nationals in the case.
