MALAYSIAN Thanasegar S. Sinnaiah, who jumped bail two years ago, has been re-arrested and brought before a Special Sitting of Criminal Mentions at the State Courts.
The 40-year-old businessman and former Malaysian footballer was previously charged with intentionally helping to arrange a meeting between Shokri Nor, a part-time soccer referee with the Football Association of Malaysia, and Singaporean Selvarajan Letchuman, where they allegedly conspired to fix a football match.
The alleged meeting took place in a hotel room in Penang on May 19, 2012, where the Malaysian referee received a sum of S$200 (RM510) and was offered up to S$5,855 (RM14,900) if the desired outcome for the match between LionsXII and Sarawak FA, played in Singapore on May 22, 2012, was achieved.
Thanasegar did not have a lawyer and no plea was entered yesterday.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Shaun Lee pressed for bail to be revoked, citing the previous bail of S$50,000 (RM127,480) and the fact that Thanasegar’s passport was impounded did not prevent him from fleeing.
The District Judge ordered no bail for Thanasegar.
A pre-trial conference has been set for
