The 55-year-old Indian-origin Singaporean Rajendran R Kurusamy was among four men charged on Saturday in a court for allegedly conspiring to fix a football match at the South East Asia Games which begins in Singapore next week.
Rajendran was accused of agreeing to pay 15,000 Singapore dollars to Orlando Marques Henriques Mendes - the Technical Director of the Football Federation of Timor Leste - as a reward, in exchange for arranging for his football team to lose their SEA Games match against Malaysia.
According to media reports, Rajendran was also given jail term in 1997 and 1999.
They will again be produced before court on June 5. If found guilty of corruption, they could be jailed up to five years and fined 1,00,000 dollars.
