Singapore team at INTERPOL headquarters to meet match-fixing investigators

LYON, France – Four senior investigators from the Singapore Police Force and the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau have arrived at the INTERPOL General Secretariat headquarters to meet with match-fixing investigators from throughout Europe.

In addition to INTERPOL officials, the team from Singapore will meet with officers from key European countries and Europol to review evidence of alleged match-fixing by a transnational organized crime group based in Singapore.

The four-day meeting (11 – 14 March) will also enable investigators to directly exchange details and information about members of the group for follow-up at the national, regional and international levels.

The task force meeting follows the recent arrest on 21 February of a suspected international match-fixer wanted by Italian authorities and subject of a confidential INTERPOL Red Notice, or international wanted persons alert.

Admir Suljic, who is accused of fraud and qualified sporting fraud committed within criminal association, was arrested in Milan following close cooperation between Italian and Singaporean Police working through their INTERPOL National Central Bureaus and INTERPOL Headquarters in Lyon, France.
