Arrest warrants sought for match-fixing in Thai football

Why doesn't this come as a surprise?

The Thai premier season finished last weekend and right on cue arrests are sought. All a bit of a mess really. Attendances have been dropping like a stone this season and you wonder how this will affect things? I guess it paves the way for yet another re--structure.

Doesn't surprise me one little bit. Thais aren't stupid, and there's no way so many referees could be so incompetent.

I BELIEVED It's still coming home. Just not quite sure when.

I was watching the swat cats highlights yesterday and the oppositions goal was really strange, even not knowing about what is now known, but the goalie seemed to make no effort whatsoever to make a save. It was all rather peculiar. Whereas the later equaliser was from a cracking heading.

15 footballers, referee and financiers charged with match-fixing scam by police
Crime Suppression Division police decided on Tuesday to press charges against 15 individuals, including eight footballers, for alleged involvement in the match-fixing of Toyota Thai League soccer tournament 2017.

The national police chief, Pol Gen Chakthip Chaijinda, said Tuesday that this was the first case of its kind when a group of footballers, financiers and a referee were charged with football match fixing.

Accompanied by CSD police handling the case, the national police chief handed over the case file to Mr Pornchai Chalavanichkul, deputy director-general of the Prosecution.

He told the media that he was confident that the police had a strong case to pin down all the perpetrators in the match-fixing scam.

After receiving the case file, Mr Pornchai said he would form a panel to scrutinize the police case file and, if there is any doubt about the case, he would invite the police officers in charge of the case for questioning. He added that the prosecutor might agree or disagree with the police in proceeding with the charges against all the 15 individuals or some of them.

The penalties for those who offer or receive bribes for match fixing are five years’ imprisonment and/or a fine from 200,000-500,000 baht, but, for a referee, the penalties are higher: 1-10 years imprisonment and/or a fine of 300,000-600,000 baht.
