Selvarajan charged in connection Singapore - Sarawak match fixing case

SINGAPORE, May 29 (Bernama) -- A project manager was charged in court today in relation to the football corruption scandal that broke last week.

Selvarajan Letchuman, 49, the third person to be hauled to court over the scandal, is accused of bribing referee Shokri Nor, 49, twice on May 19 in a Penang hotel room, reported local television station Channel NewsAsia (CNA).

CNA reported that Selvarajan, a Singaporean, had allegedly given Shokri RM15,500 in total, to fix the result of the football match between Lions XII and Sarawak on May 22.

Shokri was initially scheduled to be the referee for the LionsXII-Sarawak Malaysian Super League match. But he was swapped at the last minute.

Last week, Shokri was charged with match-fixing, along with a former football player turned businessman.
