Over 200 Sports Fixing Probes in Last Four Years

The Daily Star this weekend reports that there were over 200 sports match fixing probes in the United Kingdom in just the last four years. 

From The Daily Star:

Of 210 cases probed by the Gambling Commission since September 2007 nearly all have been over sporting fixtures.

And the majority involve football, horse racing, tennis and snooker.

But they also show that very few cases ever get to court.

Of the cases reported to the commission over the past four years 135 have been “closed” – but 133 of those could be re-opened if “new information comes to light”.

The commission says the files, including 40 connected to football, 32 to horse racing and 17 to tennis, were shut because “the grounds for suspicion of criminal activity have not been substantiated”.

The report comes just months before the start of the Summer Olympics, where authorities have all ready promised to monitor any suspicious betting patterns.
