Asian Football Confederation Drops Three Lebanese Referees Suspected Of Matchfixing

The Football Association of Singapore said three Lebanese football officials were dropped from refereeing an Asian Football Confederation Cup match in Singapore and "are helping the country's Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau" with its enquiries, according to Patrick Johnston of REUTERS. The FAS said it had contacted the AFC immediately and "replacement officials were sent to cover the match" in the region's second-tier int'l club tournament. The AFC said that "it would not comment on the situation." The CPIB said in an email, "We adopt a zero tolerance approach towards corruption, and matchfixing of any form is not condoned in Singapore" (REUTERS, 4/3).
