A Belgian court has opened a match-fixing case in tennis, according to De Standaard.
According to reports, 375 matches could have been fixed and the fraudsters could have made more than 8 million euros in profit.
Currently, 28 people are involved in the case, they will be charged with fraud, money laundering and creating a criminal organization.
The report says that in 2015, two Armenian citizens who had been living in Belgium for a long time filed an application with the Brussels Gambling Commission. A few days earlier, they had bet on a tennis match in Armenia. The players bet just under €5,000 and won €13,000, the manager deemed this suspicious and froze the funds.
This case was brought to the attention of law enforcement, who began to untangle all suspected cases. It is believed that the criminal gang could control up to 182 tennis players.
