German prosecutors in Bochum yesterday charged two people with fraud after claims they were part of a Europe-wide conspiracy to pay referees and players €350,000 to fix 24 football matches.

According to Bloomberg, the two unidentified men were among the leaders of the match-fixing ring. The two men, who according to prosecutors made more than €1.45 million betting on matches, were charged with aggravated fraud and are in pre-trial detention.

In November 2009 German police arrested 17 people in the scandal that hit leagues in nine countries, including Germany, Turkey and Switzerland. Of the 24 matches that prosecutors say were fixed, 10 were in Germany.

Wiretaps and 50 raids conducted in November yielded evidence pointing to 200 suspects.
