Gambling ScandalThe Europol has revealed that 380 games worldwide are under suspicion of having been rigged. The plot would involve a criminal organization related to the sport that would have fixed that amount of games.

A total of 425 players, managers and referees were involved in an organization based in Asia that have been pulling the strings to rig the outcome of games. Researchers have studied thirteen countries around 380 games that have taken place in countries like Germany, Austria, Britain, the Netherlands and Turkey. The activities reported a dividend of eight million and moved two in bribes.

Rob Wainwright, director of Interpol said that two Champions League matches investigated, one played in England. Besides club matches, qualifying matches for the World Cup and Euro are also on the list and "many top-flight matches in the European championships."

 

"Two qualifiers for the World Cup in Africa and one in Central America are suspect. We have evidence for 150 of these cases. Operations are directed from Singapore, with bribes of up to 100,000 euros paid by parties "explained Fridhelm Althans, police in Bochum, Germany.

Although Wainright would not go into the names of players or teams involved, it does as an example a match between Argentina and Bolivia sub'20 where a Hungarian referee deducted thirteen minutes in a match that did not demand the extension and pointed a penalty in the one hundred minutes.

It seems that Spain will not be stained by pointing to one of the greatest scandals in the history of football. "In none of the cases investigated have been manipulations in the First Division, nor have been involved or clubs or players, referees or Spanish," he told Efe Althans, who specified that the only connection with Spain is that "in any of Where matches are played on Spanish territory. " Which contrasts with the complaint made by Javier Thebes, vice president of the LFP few weeks ago when he announced he rigged games in Spain.

"It is the work of an organization that has been operating Asia across Europe," he said. "It is the largest investigation in the history of match-fixing. During the investigation, we discovered a serious problem for the integrity of football in Europe. " "We exposed a criminal organization," boasted Wainright.

The criminal organization behind this plot would have been stationed primarily in the Asian market. The capos, Asian, working closely with European links. During the investigation, we have established connections with Russian partners and other criminal syndicates. Investigations are open and do not provide any name on teams and parties involved.
