Arrests in Europe Over Soccer Fixing Investigation

“European enforcement officials said Friday that they had arrested the ring leaders of a far-reaching match-fixing cartel involving 200 soccer games in nine countries across the continent. The investigation, which was led by the German police, suggests that the sport is riddled with far more corruption at nearly all levels than fans or officials may have suspected. Announcing that 17 people had been arrested — 15 in Germany and 2 in Switzerland — prosecutors said they might have uncovered only the tip of the scandal.” (NYT)
