Football Fixing

Hard on the heels of a book which reveals the role of Malaysians in the international reptile smuggling, comes one on which talks about how Malaysians are among those implicated in the fixing of international sporting events.

Investigative journalist Declan Hill in his new book The Fix : Soccer and Organised Crime blows the lid off match fixing in international football. Yesterday's Malay Mail also featured an interview with Hill reproduced from Der Spiegel (which continues in today's edition) and a profile the very much wanted Fixer Lim. (More on Hill's website.)

All together now ... Malaysia boleh!

Oh Sharon, there's more - Malaysians involved in human trafficking, sex slaves, overstayers, gruesome murders, drug trafficking, credit card fraud..
I attended the football match fixing case - we certainly boleh.

But according to today's Malay Mail 'fixer Lim' is a 'British national'.

There was a lim in the case, but he was acquited.
