DAN Tan Seet Eng, the Singaporean businessman who is reportedly a match-fixing mastermind who rigged games in Europe, is now helping Singaporean authorities with investigations.

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) said on Thursday: "Dan Tan Seet Eng, a Singaporean who has been named in reports so far, is currently assisting Singapore authorities in their investigations."

The SPF did not reveal further information when the 48-year-old, wanted by the Italian police, started cooperating with local authorities.

The Italian authorities are unable to nab Tan as their country does not have an extradition treaty with Singapore.
