Turkish Parliament Cuts Jail Term for Match-Fixing to 3 Years

Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Turkey’s national assembly approved a legislation yesterday evening, reducing prison terms for match-fixing charges to between one and three years from 12 years, Deputy Speaker of Parliament Mehmet Saglam said.

Scores of people including Aziz Yildirim, league champion Fenerbahce’s chairman, executives, coaches, footballers, journalists and former officials have been jailed as part of a probe into alleged match-fixing charges in Turkish soccer.

Special prosecutor Mehmet Berk’s case became public July 4 after raids to clubs including runner up Trabzon and cup winner Besiktas.
