Charged in court

Two Malaysians were charged in court on Thursday with abetting in a conspiracy to fix the LionsXII and Sarawak Malaysian Super League (MSL) soccer match played on Tuesday evening.
Thana Segar S. Sinnaiah, 38, a businessman and a former football player, and referee Shokri Nor, 47, are said to have schemed with each other in a hotel room in Penang to corruptly agree to receive a bribe of RM15,000 (S$6,090) to fix the result of the match which ended in a 3-0 win for LionsXII.
During the match, held at the Jalan Besar Stadium, Shokri was replaced as referee at the last minute.
Three others have since been called up by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau for questioning.
