Estonia charges 11 men over match fixing

Dec 02, 2013
From wire reports, TALLINN

The Public Prosecutor's office in Estonia said on Monday, Dec. 2 it had charged 11 men for match-fixing in 2011 and 2012.

The office said in a statement that the charges related to 12 domestic league games, three Europa League matches and a fixture each in Lithuania and Ireland

The 11 men approached footballers in Estonia, Lithuania and Ukraine who were prepared to fix games for money, the statement read.

The accused are alleged to have pocketed 108,000 euros ($147,000) from the scam.
Last week two men were charged with conspiracy to defraud as part of an investigation into match-fixing in English lower-league football.

Earlier this year an inquiry by European police forces, Europol and national prosecutors uncovered a global betting scam run from Singapore.

About 680 suspicious matches, including the Champions League and qualifying games for the World Cup and European Championships, were identified in the probe.
