Singapore’s police are working with Interpol to help Italian authorities investigate an international football match-fixing scandal based in the Asian city.

Europol revealed startling revelations this week about the syndicate trying to fix games across Europe, including World Cup and European Championship qualifiers.

An 18-month investigation dubbed 'Operation VETO' found 425 match officials, club executives, players and criminals in 15 countries conspiring to fix more than 380 matches.

The identification of the Singaporean syndicate in fixing has resulted in businessman Dan Tan Seet Eng being placed on Italy's most-wanted list.
