ANKARA, Turkey (AP) – Turkey's state-run Anatolia news agency says a court has formally charged 15 more suspects in an alleged match-fixing scam that has implicated league champion Fenerbahce and issued an arrest warrant for the club's president.
The Anatolia says the court in Istanbul arraigned the suspects, including two senior Fenerbahce officials - Sekip Mosturoglu and Ilhan Eksioglu, on Thursday, increasing the number of suspects in jail pending trial to 22. The court also issued an arrest warrant for Fenerbahce President Aziz Yildirim after he underwent a cardiology check-up.
The suspects also include Bulent Uygun, technical director of Eskisehirspor, and Mecnun Odyakmaz, president of Sivasspor, along with several soccer players.
The court released five suspects.
