AUSTRALIA - A man police say is the ringleader of Australia's involvement in a global match-fixing syndicate has made "veiled threats" against some of his co-accused, a court has heard.
Police allege Segaran "Gerry" Subramaniam, 45, is the liaison between the Victorian Premier League football team the Southern Stars and the match-fixing syndicate, which has earned more than A$2 million (S$2.3m) in betting winnings, The Age reported.
Subramaniam, a Malaysian, four of the team's players and its coach have all been charged under Victoria's new laws on match-fixing.
Subramaniam has allegedly acted as a point man for convicted Singaporean match-fixer Wilson Raj Perumal.
