Interpol has confirmed the arrest of 14 people on suspicion of being involved in a match-fixing network.

PSSI has handed down its verdict
12 men and two women in Singapore have been arrested over match-fixing allegations.

The arrests were made following raids across Singapore, with one of the people take into custody believed to the the leader of the group.

Details over alleged matches involved in the match-fixing scandal have not yet been released, but the arrests were part of a joint operation led by Singapore Police and the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.

Interpol secretary General Ronald K. Noble said: "Singaporean authorities have taken an important step in cracking down on an international match-fixing syndicate by arresting the main suspects in the case, including the suspected mastermind; no person should doubt Singapore's commitment to fighting match-fixing.

"On behalf of INTERPOL, I would like to commend Singapore for building its own criminal investigation and for demonstrating its ability and determination to fight the match-fixing problem at home and abroad.

"Singapore put into action its commitment of collaborating with INTERPOL and its member countries in this important global fight by making these arrests."
