29th May 2024 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) launched an operation last year, dismantling an illicit organised gambling and match-fixing syndicate. According to sources, following a thorough investigation, the ICAC recently initiated an extended enforcement action, targeting several players, including those from the Hong Kong Premier League teams.
