English football match fixing court case
#1
Obviously, match fixing doesn't happen in the Premier League, but only in lower leagues. Obviously.

It is, in fact, so obvious, that there's no need to even consider it. Obviously.

Or investigate it. Obviously.

And it is equally obvious, that Singaporean arch fixers only focus their efforts on lower leagues where the sums involved are petty change when compared to the PL, where the sums involved are simply vast.

No match fixer in their right mind would consider trying to graft the same system onto the PL.

Obviously.

Two men will appear in court today after being charged as part of an investigation into alleged football match-fixing.

The Crown Prosecution Service's Organised Crime Division is satisfied it is in the public interest to authorise charges of conspiracy to defraud, a spokesman for the National Crime Agency (NCA) said.
Chann Sankaran, a 33-year-old Singapore national, and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, a 43-year-old with dual UK and Singapore nationality, will appear at Cannock Magistrates' Court in Staffordshire.
The NCA said the men, who are alleged to be members of an international illegal betting syndicate based in Singapore, are among six people arrested earlier this week as part of an NCA investigation.
A seventh man has since been arrested and he and four others were bailed yesterday pending further inquiries.
The charges allege that between November 1 and November 26, "at City of Manchester and elsewhere, the two men conspired together with each other and others to defraud bookmakers by influencing the course of football matches and placing bets thereon".
The maximum sentence for this offence is 10 years' imprisonment.
It emerged yesterday that a former Premier League footballer is among those held as part of the investigation.
The suspects are reported to include three current footballers.
Delroy Facey, 33, did not turn up to play for his club Albion Sports as scheduled against Athersley Recreation in the NCEL Premier League on Wednesday night, according to the club's secretary Jaj Singh.
Mr Singh said: "He was due to come but didn't turn up. He was named on the subs' bench but was a no show. I have no idea. He's been with us about three months and is a cracking lad."
Facey scored two in an 8-1 win over Armthorpe Welfare on Saturday and has scored six goals for Albion Sports this season.
The arrests were made following an investigation by the Daily Telegraph during which undercover reporters discussed the possibility of influencing the scores and outcomes of lower-league English games for as little as £50,000.
It is not believed that any Premier League sides are involved in the allegations.
A Football Association spokesman said: "The FA has been made aware of a number of arrests in relation to an NCA investigation.
"We have worked closely with the authorities in relation to these allegations. The FA will make no further comment at this time due to ongoing investigations."

Video: Football Match-Fixing Claims

Police have confirmed to Sky News they have opened a new investigation into match-fixing allegations.
The National Crime Agency said it is looking at claims passed to them by the Sun on Sunday.
The newspaper alleges it has evidence of a player saying he could arrange a yellow card booking in the Championship League in exchange for thousands of pounds.
[Image: sun-front-page-1-252x337.jpg]The Sun on SundayIn a statement, the National Crime Agency said: "The NCA can confirm that the Sun on Sunday has passed material from its own investigation to the National Crime Agency.
"An active NCA investigation is now under way and we are working closely with the Football Association and the Gambling Commission. We cannot comment further at this stage."
Sky News sports presenter Charlie Thomas said: "The fact that the NCA is investigating indicates just how seriously they are taking these allegations."
Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey, said: "We treat any allegations of criminal activity in our competitions with the utmost seriousness.
"Given that there is an ongoing police investigation into this matter, we cannot comment further at this time.
"Although, we would encourage anyone with any evidence to report it to the Police.
"We will be giving our full assistance to the Police during their investigation."
[Image: nca-for-scoop-1-522x293.jpg]The National Crime Agency is investigating separate fixing claimsThe new probe comes after the NCA announced at the end of last month that it had launched an investigation into "a suspected international illegal betting syndicate".
Gambling on the matches is thought to have taken place on Asian-based betting services and so far investigators to do not believe British betting markets are involved.
The inquiry was launched after an undercover investigation by the Daily Telegraph newspaper, which recorded one alleged fixer offering to rig two games.
It is understood to involve clubs in the English Football Conference, the level below the Football League.
On Thursday, the NCA revealed that two footballers from Brighton-based Conference South team Whitehawk FC had been charged over match-fixing allegations.
Michael Boateng and Hakeem Adelakun, both 22 and from the Croydon area of south London, were charged with conspiracy to defraud contrary to common law.
The two men have been bailed to appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on December 11.
They are the third and fourth people charged to date in connection with the NCA investigation into the alleged international illegal betting syndicate.
Chann Sankaran, 33, from Hastings, East Sussex, and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, 43, from Singapore, were charged on November 28 with plotting to defraud bookmakers.
Both were remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on December 13.
Thomas said both NCA investigations were being carried out separately.
He added: "This is a situation that football has been fearing and had hoped it had nothing to do with football at all, but now it appears it is encroaching on the league as well as the non-league."

Obviously this ONLY ever happens in the lower Conference leagues and on kiddies football fields, where as we all know there is a vast amount of interest of from far east begging syndicates - because, as we also all know, the average Singaporean and Chinese better excitedly follows each match of all these barely known league matches on Sky TV's dedicated channel "Betting-4-Us" which transmits these vastly exciting matches all over the world, from a dedicated bank vault.

Phew! Thank God I managed to correct, in time, any possible misconceptions that might have arisen by unaware readers who though my comments were directed at the vast money enterprise that is the English Premier League.

Does anyone have an end season schedule of the hugely popular Conference and Isthmian leagues tours to the far east please?
