A Singaporean was among four men charged on Saturday morning (May 30) for his alleged role in conspiring to fix a SEA Games football match.
Rajendran R Kurusamy, 55, was accused of corruptly agreeing to give S$15,000 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. Rajendran denied the charge.
Orlando is also the team manager for the football team fielded by Timor Leste for the SEA Games. Court documents revealed that Rajendran had met the official at Orchid Country Club on May 28.
