Singaporean Dan Tan charged in Hungary football match-fixing probe
BUDAPEST (AFP) - Hungarian prosecutors said Friday that Dan Tan, a notorious Singaporean alleged match-fixer wanted around the world, was charged in absentia along with 44 others suspected of manipulating football matches.
The 45 including Tan Seet Eng, better known by his pseudonym Dan Tan, were indicted on Thursday after a four-year probe into the alleged manipulation of 32 games across Hungary, Italy and Finland.
The others, all Hungarians, include former players, players still active, referees, club owners, managers and coaches.
Mr Geza Fazekas, spokesman for Hungary's chief prosecutor's office, told AFP on Friday that four separate trials would be held due to the large number of people and matches involved.
