Police make arrests for SEA Games match fixing

A Singaporean and several foreigners have been arrested on suspicion of trying to fix football matches at the Southeast Asian Games, according to Agence France Presse.

In a statement, the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) said it had been "proactively monitoring football match-fixing activities" and acted on information it received to arrest "a Singaporean alleged match-fixer and several co-conspirators of different nationalities."

"Some members from the Timor Leste SEA Games football team are also assisting the Bureau in its investigations," the CPIB said.

The agency did not provide further details about the suspects arrested or those being investigated.

It said the suspects were being probed under the city-state's tough Prevention of Corruption Act.
