Tennis anyone?

This press release reports the conclusion of a sports fixing investigation in Spain, with 83 arrests including 28 professional tennis players. The case involves an organized crime group that “bribed professional players to guarantee predetermined results and used the identities of thousands of citizens to bet on the pre-arranged games.” After placing bribes, “the Armenian network members attended the matches to ensure that the tennis players complied with what was previously agreed, and gave orders to other members of the group to go ahead with the bets placed at national and international level.”
