Oil smuggling ring extended its reach into professional football
The oil smuggling ring recently uncovered by the police appears to have extended its reach into professional football, with the intelligence services documenting instances of implicated parties extorting a Super League football player.
According to the police information one of the 17 recently arrested suspects and fuel station owner, can be heard over the phone making demands from a player, in order to have a reduced performance in an upcoming game. The conversation suggests that the football player owed a considerable amount of money to the suspect.
The police have looked into the details of the particular football match and have summoned the Greek football player to file a statement.
