Singapore businessman assisting probe into football match-fixing

Feb 22 2013, 5:02am CST | by

Singapore, Feb 22 (IANS) Dan Tan Seet Eng, a Singaporean businessman who is reportedly the mastermind behind an international football match-fixing syndicate, is now helping authorities with investigations, local daily Straits Times quoted Singapore Police as saying Friday.

Singapore, Feb 22 — Dan Tan Seet Eng, a Singaporean businessman who is reportedly the mastermind behind an international football match-fixing syndicate, is now helping authorities with investigations, local daily Straits Times quoted Singapore Police as saying Friday.

The newspaper said six to nine of Tan's associates were called in for questioning by the authorities at different times early this week and were all released without being charged.

One of the men, Admir Sulic, however, was arrested at the Malpensa Airport in Milan, Italy, on his arrival Thursday. Sulic, a Slovenian who is accused of "criminal association aimed at sporting fraud", had bought a one-way ticket with the intention of surrendering to the authorities, Xinhua reports.

Singapore Police had a role to play in his arrest, providing information to Interpol that he was on a flight from Singapore to Italy.

The police did not reveal information such as when the 48-year-old Tan, wanted by the Italian police, started cooperating with local authorities.

In 2011, Tan was fingered by Wilson Raj Perumal, 46, a Singaporean convicted and jailed in Finland for match-fixing. Perumal is now under house arrest in Hungary.

"I want to compliment the Singapore police not just for their activity yesterday (for providing information on Sulic) but also their activity in fighting international crime, including match-fixing," said Ronald Noble, general secretary of Interpol.

The Singapore Police also said Thursday that a team of four senior officers from the police and the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau will be heading to the Interpol headquarters in Lyon, France, within the next two weeks and join the Interpol Global Anti-Match-Fixing Taskforce to assist in probe.

INDIA-JAPAN-ANNIVERSARY-DIPLOMATIC-RELATIONS
The last American team was eliminated on Sunday night, setting up an all Chinese final. It felt like 2014 would be Evil Geniuses' year. The team won several premier tournaments, and a narrow victory over Team DK in June paired with a crushing win against Na'Vi at the HyperX D2L Western Challenge set the stage for EG to become the first American team to reach the finals of The International. ViCi Gaming had other ideas. ...
