Yildirim implicated in Turkish corruption claims

3 December 2011 15:33

Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim is one of 93 people to face charges related to a match-fixing scandal, Turkish prosecutors revealed.

Yildirim and over 30 other figures in the game were detained and questioned in the summer as a result of the investigation, which saw the start of the Turkish top flight delayed by a month.

Fourteen players will be formally charged for their roles in the alleged match-fixing, including Sercan Yildirim, Umit Karan and Emmanuel Emenike, the latter having since left Turkey to join Russian side Spartak Moscow.

Seven clubs have been named in the case which are Fenerbahce, Besiktas, Trabzonspor, Istanbul B.B, Sivasspor, Manisaspor, Mersin Idman Yurdu and Giresunspor.

The indictments will be filed at an Istanbul court on Monday, where the individuals could receive lengthy jail sentences and some clubs could be relegated as a result.

On Friday, Turkish president Abdullah Gul vetoed legislation that was approved by parliament which would have seen the maximum jail sentence for match-fixing reduced from 12 years to three.
