Dec. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Mehmet Berk, an Istanbul prosecutor, sought jail terms for officials of eight Turkish soccer clubs, including last season’s league champion Fenerbahce, cup winner Besiktas and Trabzonspor, in an alleged match-fixing probe, Haberturk reported, citing Deputy Prosecutor Fikret Secen.

A 400-page indictment, prepared by a group of prosecutors led by Berk, was sent to an Istanbul court yesterday, Secen said, according to the newspaper. The court will decide in two weeks whether to go ahead with the case, he said.

Prosecutors are seeking jail terms for 93 club executives, coaches, footballers, journalists and former officials, 31 of whom are already in jail, as part of the probe of Turkish soccer, the newspaper said.
