Matchfixing should be given greater priority in the judiciary and police, according to Europol serious crime expert David Ellero. Organized crime is increasingly involved in manipulating football matches and many European countries are not addressing the problem
A Dutch man was arrested in Germany on January 9th for involvement in match fixing, the Bochum public prosecutor confirmed to the Volkskrant. "I can say that we arrested a resident of the Netherlands. We suspect him of match fixing, which is called fraud in the indictment", the prosecutor said to the newspaper.
The lawsuit against Dutchman Paul R., who is suspected of involvement in match fixing in football, appears in court in Bochum, Germany on Tuesday.
The Dutch suspect in a major German football match-fixing case named top Netherlands referee Serdar Gözübüyük as having involvement in the cheating scandal, according to the Volkskrant. A court in Bochum, Germany will hear accusations against Paul R. on Tuesday.
