They were brought in to a Singapore district court last Thursday after allegedly attempting to fix a Malaysian Super League football match.

Part-time referee Shokri Nor and former football player Thanasegar S Sinnaiah - both Malaysians - were then accused of engaging in a conspiracy with each other to agreeing to receive RM15,000 ($6,000) in bribes to fix the result of a match between Singapore’s LionsXII and Sarawak FA.

Their original charges, however, did not mention from whom they had allegedly agreed to receive the money.

The court heard yesterday that the duo have had their charges amended to include Selvarajan Letchuman.

The 49-year-old Singaporean project manager was charged on Tuesday with giving and agreeing to give a total of RM15,500 in bribes to Shokri on May 19.
