Turkey softens match-fixing legislation

25 November 2011 14:25

The Turkish government has reduced the prison term for match-fixing in football as investigations of several high-profile figures continue.

Club officials from the likes of Fenerbahce, Trabzonspor and Besiktas have been arrested in a scandal affecting 19 top-flight games last season, but now it seems those affected will face a shortened spell behind bars.

Parliament and lawmakers working with the ruling AK Party have unanimously voted to reduce the maximum sentence from 12 years to three years.

Over 30 club officials and players were arrested after a remarkable unbeaten run saw Fenerbahce claim the Super Lig crown, including club president and prominent businessman Aziz Yildirim.
