KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Interpol's chief says Singaporean police have notified authorities in Italy that a suspected match-fixer is flying to Milan.
Interpol secretary general Ronald Noble said Thursday that the man works for Singaporean businessman Tan Seet Eng — known as Dan Tan — for whom Italian authorities have issued an arrest warrant.
Noble did not identify the man while speaking at a match-fixing conference in Malaysia, saying only that Singaporean police passed the information to Interpol, which will decide whether to detain him when he lands in Milan later Thursday.
Tan is accused of heading a crime syndicate that made millions betting on rigged Italian soccer matches. Italian officials have been unable to take Tan into custody as the arrest warrant cannot be served while he's in Asia.
