KELONG KING WILSON RAJ
We now know that illegal football betting has an annual turnover of US$1 trillion (S$1.25 trillion).
Prolific match fixers like Wilson Raj Perumal and alleged Singaporean kingpin Dan Tan Seet Eng have had their rivalry publicly exposed on the world stage.
Wilson Raj is a convicted match-fixer under house arrest in Hungary.
These two men are said to be former associates in a global kelong (Malay slang for match-fixing) enterprise with Balkan links.
They fell out when Wilson Raj believed he had been betrayed by Mr Tan, resulting in the former's arrest in Finland in 2011.
TNP was the first to break the news of Wilson Raj's arrest in Finland for bribery and possession of a fake passport in late February 2011.
These stories helped to show how there were local links to global match-fixing.
