Experts have said that easy international transport, a passport accepted around the world and fluency in English and Mandarin have helped Singaporean fixers spread their influence with the support of external investors, most believed to be from China.
Sabbagh was jailed for six months while Ali Eid and Abdallah Taleb served three-month sentences.
The High Court judge said he accepted the argument by state prosecutors “that the syndicate that Ding was involved in was operating on a large scale”.
“As Ding appears to be a significant player fairly high up in the echelons of the syndicate with the ability to make decisions on who to bribe, the manner of bribery and what games are to be selected for match-fixing, his sentence must be increased appropriately,” the judge said.
Justice Chan said the benchmarks for jail terms imposed on match-fixers must be increased from 18 months, the highest sentence for one charge, as the crime is becoming harder to detect, easier to commit thanks to technology, and more lucrative.
Those convicted of fixing matches at the World Cup level should get 3.5 years for each charge and fixing at the local league level should earn 1.5 years in jail, Chan said.
Ding’s case is the latest in Singapore’s long history of match-fixing scandals, which have tarnished the city-state’s reputation for clean government and low crime.
In September, police detained 14 people believed to be members of a global match-fixing syndicate, including the suspected mastermind Dan Tan.
Tan, also known as Tan Seet Eng, is currently being held under a law that allows for indefinite detention, which is typically used against key gangsters.
Yeah, as much as I like seeing girls being dominated, which often means girls doing things just for their man's pleasure and not really enjoying it themselves - I like that these two seem to be genuinely having a lot of fun. Love the shots of her ass in doggy, and love that she sucks balls!
Perfect tits, nice shaved cunt, smooth little ass, cute asshole.
Guy's roommate is so lucky, she just hangs around naked and sucks cock in front of him.
