12 charged in Czech match fixing scandal

“Twelve people have been arrested... in relation to suspected corruption in football, possible match fixing in different competitions and related punting activities,” anti-corruption squad spokesman Jaroslav Ibehej said in a statement.

Twenty others have been summoned for questioning and the police have also carried out 15 house searches, he added. “Those arrested were subsequently charged with corruption crimes (bribery and accepting a bribe),” said Ibehej.

The Czech police are co-operating with their Slovak counterparts on the case. Czech media have said top-flight sides FK Teplice and FK Jablonec were involved in the affair.
