Ex-Romania chief detained

BUCHAREST, Romania -- Prosecutors have detained the former chairman of the Professional Football League and other officials on suspicion of avoiding tax in the sale of match rights to television stations.

A statement said Dumitru Dragomir and six officials were detained on Monday as part of a criminal investigation into fiscal evasion and money laundering costing the state three million euros. Dragomir, chairman of the league from 1996 to 2013, maintains his innocence.

Prosecutors said top league matches were sold from 2011-2013 to TV stations and officials used fictitious accounts to hide transactions.

Before detaining the seven, police searched the homes of 11 people and the headquarters of the football league.

In March, eight officials were jailed in a separate case on charges of tax evasion in transfers to foreign clubs.
