A source told AFP that Singaporean businessman Dan Tan, full name Tan Seet Eng, was among 14 people held in raids this week. Police said the gang’s “suspected leader” was arrested, without giving a name.
His arrest appears to be a step forward in Singapore’s fight against match fixing syndicates linked to scandals in several countries including Italy, Germany and Hungary.
Dan Tan was among 12 men and two women arrested. He and four others out of the group were denied bail. They are being held under a law, usually applied to criminal gangs, which allows for detention without trial.
