Suspect Detained in Match-Fixing Probe
February 21, 2013
A Slovenian citizen has been detained on suspicion of match-fixing by the Italian authorities at Milan airport.
Admir Suljic, pills who is suspected of being an associate of mat-fixing suspect Tan Seet Eng was arrested by police when he arrived in Milan from Singapore on Thursday morning.
A tip-off from the authorities in Singapore led to his detainment.
Ronald Noble, medicine Interpol chief said: “The man is wanted by the Italian authorities for his alleged involvement in match-fixing under the organisation based in Singapore and controlled by Tan Seet Eng.”
Italian police issued a warrant for Tan’s arrest after accusations that he heads a global match-fixing organisation.
Europol announced earlier this year that they were investigating 680 matches around the globe in connection to match-fixing.
