MHA: Four persons have been issued Detention Orders for being part of a global match fixing syndicate
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has confirmed that four persons have been issued Detention Orders for being part of a global match fixing syndicate.
In response to media queries, it said another person was issued with a Police Supervision Order.
The Orders will be referred to a Criminal Law Advisory Committee within the next 28 days.
The persons issued with the Orders will be informed of thegrounds of detention.
They will appear before the Advisory Committee and may be legally represented at the Hearing.
The Advisory Committee shall then submit its recommendations to the President.
The MHA said it's not able to release the names of the five persons as the process has not yet been completed.
As for the other nine persons who were released on bail on the 17th of September, investigations are still ongoing.
Altogether 14 people were arrested on suspicion of being part of an organised crime group involved in football match-fixing activities last month.
