International police organisation Interpol said Singapore should be credited for the recent arrests of 14 suspects who are allegedly part of a global football match-fixing ring.
SINGAPORE: International police organisation Interpol said Singapore should be credited for the recent arrests of 14 suspects who are allegedly part of a global football match-fixing ring.
Secretary General of Interpol Ronald Noble said the outcome was due to successful cooperation between Singapore and Interpol's Global Anti-Match-fixing Task Force.
Mr Noble said: "Those who do not recognise the commitment and resources that Singapore has devoted to identifying those believed to be responsible for match-fixing cases, or those who seek publicity -- simply to criticise every positive development that occurs in fighting match-fixing should simply open their eyes and look at the facts."
Mr Noble responded on Monday to author Declan Hill's assertions last week that Singapore's authorities had tolerated match-fixing in the country.
He was at a topping-out ceremony to mark progress in construction of the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation.
Mr Noble said Singapore has been committed to working closely with partners around the world to build the strongest case against match-fixing in the country.
