Korean Basketball League Coach To Be Questioned On Suspicion Of Fixing Games

Korean Basketball League Wonju Dongbu Promy head coach Kang Dong-hee  "will be questioned by prosecutors Thursday over possible manipulation of games," according to Kim Tong-hyung of the KOREA TIMES. Authorities arrested a fixer who they believed paid Kang 30M won (about $27,500) for fixing a league game two years ago. Kang has "strongly denied the allegation." An official from the prosecution in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi Province said, ''It’s difficult for us to provide more details on a case that is currently under investigation. If we are able to prove that Kang was indeed involved in rigging games, our probe will spread widely into the league" (KOREA TIMES, 3/6).
