Police complete probe into match-fixing claims

October 7, 2013

PRAGUE (AP) — Czech police are recommending that four people be charged in connection with two football match-fixing cases.

The Czech football federation asked police to investigate after referee Tomas Adamek admitted he was paid 200,000 koruna ($10,600) to fix Baumit Jablonec’s home game against Viktoria Plzen on March 17, 2012 — a 2-0 win for Plzen.

Police say Adamek, another referee who was a witness and didn’t report wrongdoing and a football official who offered the bribe should be charged in that case.

Police also say a football official should be charged with bribery in a separate case because he offered a 50,000 koruna ($2,600) bribe to a player to play poorly in an unspecified top league match last season.
