Belgian court to hear 375 match-fixing case in tennis
A Belgian court has opened a case involving match-fixing in tennis, according to De Standaard.
It is reported that 375 matches could have been fixed, and the fraudsters could have made more than €8 million in profits.
Currently, 28 people are involved in the case, they will be charged with fraud, money laundering and the creation of a criminal organization.
The report says that in 2015, two Armenian citizens who had long lived in Belgium applied to the Brussels Gambling Commission. A few days before, they made a bet on a tennis match in Armenia. The players bet a little less than €5,000 and won €13,000. The manager considered this suspicious and froze the funds.
This case came to the attention of law enforcement agencies, which began to unravel all suspicious cases. It is believed that the criminal gang could control up to 182 tennis players.
