Local authorities are assisting in investigations into international match-fixing syndicate

The Singapore Police has confirmed that local authorities are assisting their European counterparts in investigations into an international match-fixing syndicate that purportedly involves Singaporeans.

Their efforts come as Europol, an organisation co-ordinating the work of police forces across Europe, uncovered suspicious activity in 680 soccer matches played around the world that suggest they may have been fixed by criminal networks.

National law enforcement in the respective countries, including Germany and Italy, are already pursuing cases, while arrest warrants have also been issued in Asia in relation to this investigation.
