Fixer of Australian soccer games jailed

The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- A Malaysian man who organized an international match-fixing syndicate involving Australian soccer games in 2013 has been jailed for at least a year.

Segaran ''Gerry'' Subramaniam pleaded guilty to fixing six Victorian Premier League matches last year. A judge Thursday jailed Subramaniam for three years but suspended two years of his prison term.

Last year, Southern Stars players Reiss Noel and Joe Woolley, both from England, were convicted and fined for helping to fix four games.

Fellow English players David Obaze and Nicholas McKoy and team coach Zia Younan also have been charged and are to appear again in court in June.
