Chief of referees arrested for fixing matches

romaniantimes.at

The chief of referees in Romania, Vasile Avram, was arrested for 29 days, after anti-corruption prosecutors accused him of taking bribes in order to name certain referees for a match, so that a particular team would win in the country's League I.

He took 19,000 Euros, prosecutors say, from a businessman who was also arrested.

The arrest decision was appealed against by lawyers.

The Bucharest Court on Sunday ordered the 29-day preventive arrest of Central Referee Commission head Vasile Avram and businessman Sorin Terbea for taking bribes to fix football matches in the local championship.

Nicolae Iacobescu and Vasile Constantin Chiorean, part of Terbea's entourage, are also investigated in the case, at large, for accessory to bribery.

Anti-corruption prosecutors said that on 21 May 2011, Avram, supervisor for the match between FCM Targu Mures and Universitatea Cluj, received 19,000 Euros from Terbea to appoint referees endorsed by FCM Targu Mures.
