Private Investigator Hired to Investigate Israeli Soccer Scandal

An International Herald Tribune article is reporting that Asher Weizman, a private investigator employed by the Israel Football Association (IFA) is investigating a match-fixing scandal.

The IFA convened an emergency meeting Monday as two more Israeli soccer players were arrested in a widening soccer scandal. two players from the Hapoel Beersheba team — goalkeeper Assi Rachamim and central defender Oz Yifrach — were arrested Sunday on suspicions that they knew their teammates planned to throw games but didn’t report it. Three Hapoel Beersheba players were arrested last week on suspicions of match-fixing. All five remain in custody.
