German Match-fixing Case Reheard

on .

The German federal court has ruled that the trial against the Croats Ante Sapina and Marijo Cvrtak, convicted for their leading role in Europe's biggest match-fixing affair, must be partly reheard.

Sapina and Cvrtak were both sentenced to prison for 5.5 years for their part in the match-fixing of more than twenty games, including a World Cup qualifier in 2009.

The court in Karlsruhe has referred the case back to the regional court in Bochum, with new arguments for and against the two, as sentence reductions for witnesses in the case should be taken into consideration.
