Danish police charge man for 2010 match-fixing in country's 2nd-tier league


COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Danish police have charged a 27-year-old man with serious fraud for fixing two matches in Denmark's second-tier football league four years ago.

Prosecutor Per Justesen said Thursday the man, who was not identified, was one of six suspects in a match-fixing scheme involving an unnamed Filipino organization. Four of the suspects are players with Danish club Hvidovre.

Authorities have earlier said the 27-year-old man gave the Filipino organization information about one of the two games, which was used to bet on the game.

The five others remain preliminarily charged — a step short of formal charges — in the case. Justesen would not say whether they would be formally charged.
