Alleged match-fixer Eric Ding Si Yang has to give his defence in court, after a district court found on Thursday that prosecutors had made out a prima facie case against him for corruption.

This means the court found that there is enough evidence to continue with the case against him.

The 31-year-old had allegedly bribed three Lebanese match officials using sex with prostitutes when they were here to officiate an Asian Football Confederation match on April 3 last year.

His trial, which has already stretched to 22 days since it began last July, will continue on the week of March 24.
