Key report on match-fixing yet to be finalized
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsA member of the Turkish Football Federation’s (TFF) Ethics Committee denied reports that “no clubs would be punished” in the match-fixing case.
Oğuz Atalay, the head of the Ethics Committee, announced yesterday that their investigation into the match-fixing case had not yet been completed and no report had been compiled for the TFF. The report will play a crucial role in assisting the TFF rule on the match-fixing case.
“The investigation is not completed and the report is yet to be prepared,” Atalay said, responding to media reports claiming the Ethics Committee tended to rule in favor of punishing sports officials rather than their clubs.
A total of 93 football players, officials and coaches are charged with match-fixing and at least eight clubs risk being punished by the TFF, which will start its sanctioning process after the Ethics Committee delivers its report.
