Spanish Government Could Devote New Government Agency To Stop Match-Fixing

Spain's government has proposed a division to add to the Spanish Protection of Health and Anti-Doping Agency: match-fixing, bribery and illegal betting, according to Gerardo Riquelme of MARCA. This division, "for which there is no date determined because the Law Against Fraud just started being drafted a few weeks ago, could be ready by Sept. '14." The division would concentrate on cheating under the same umbrella, with Anti-Doping Director Ana Muñoz in charge. A spokesperson said that "the project is viewed favorably by the Superior Sports Council" (CSD) (MARCA, 6/12).
