30 May 2012. Selvarajan Letchuman, 49,  a project manager, was charged on Tuesday for bribing 47-year-old Shokri Nor twice on the same day (May 19) in a Penang hotel room.

Selvarajan, had allegedly given Shokri 15,500 ringgit (S$ 6,070) in total, to fix the result of a football match between Lions XII and Sarawak FA on 22 May 2012.

On May 21, the CPIB received a tip off that the match between the LionsXII and Sarawak the next day at the Jalan Besar Stadium may have been compromised. Acting on the tip-off, the CPIB arrested Shokri, Thana Segar S Sinniah, 38, believed to be a former Malaysian international, and two others on the day of the match.

The match ended with Lions XII winning 3-0.

FAS said it had “zero tolerance” of corruption after the latest incident, which follows a similar event this month when two South Korean ex-players of Singapore’s Geylang were found guilty of attempted match-fixing.
