He's the “leader” and “organiser” of a global match-fixing syndicate that has plagued Italian football.
That’s how Italian court papers describe Singaporean Dan Tan Seet Eng (above), 47, in an ongoing investigation into match-rigging.
The New Paper obtained the latest edition of the Cremona investigation papers, which chronicle Tan’s alleged involvement in the rigging of 33 matches in Italy’s top two leagues, Serie A and Serie B, over the last two years.
As much as two million euros ($3.2 million) was bet on one of the rigged matches through the use of Asian betting websites.
Meanwhile, the general manager of former S-League club Liaoning Guangyuan, Wang Xin, has been sentenced to seven years in a China jail for bribing and gambling, Xinhua reported.
