2 Asian businessmen convicted of match-fixing
(06-17 19:00)

Two Asian businessmen have been convicted of plotting to fix matches in the lower reaches of English football.
A Birmingham Crown Court jury deliberated for more than 12 hours before finding Chann Sankaran and Krishna Ganeshan guilty on Tuesday of conspiracy to commit bribery. Both men are originally from Singapore.
The jurors cleared a former player, Hakeem Adelakun, of the same charge. The jury was still considering verdicts for two other players, Moses Swaibu and Michael Boateng.
The three played for Brighton-based Whitehawk in the non-league Conference South division, the sixth tier of English football. They were arrested in December following an undercover operation by Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper.
Sankaran and Ganeshan were described as central figures in efforts to fix matches in League Two and the Conference South divisions. --AP
