SINGAPORE: A former Malaysian national footballer was jailed for two years on Thursday for match-fixing.
Thanasegar S. Sinnaiah, 40, had abetted project manager Selvarajan Letchuman to corruptly give RM15,000 to Malaysian part-time referee Shokri Nor to ensure that LionsXII beat Sarawak FA in the Malaysian Super League by at least three goals in May 2012.
The match ended in a 3-0 win for LionsXII. All three were arrested before the match kicked off.
Thanasegar had also abetted Selvarajan and Shokri in a conspiracy to cheat Singapore Pools by dishonestly concealing the match-fixing arrangements. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
