FIFA remains silent over Cameroon match fixing allegations

FIFA has refused to comment on whether or not an investigation is under way into allegations that Cameroon have been involved in match-fixing at the current World Cup. A convicted match-fixer, Wilson Raj Perumal, is said to have accurately predicted the 4-0 scoreline and that a Cameroon player would be sent-off in the first half.

"We do not provide any comment as to whether or not an investigation is underway with regards to any manipulation of matches," FIFA spokesperson Delia Fischer said.

"The FIFA disciplinary code and code of ethics both say that only after a decision has been taken by the FIFA disciplinary commission or the ethics committee, and all parties concerned notified first, would FIFA be in a position to communicate that decision publically.

"Generally speaking, the integrity of the game is FIFA's top priority and we take allegations of match-fixing very seriously.

"FIFA continues to work closely with law enforcement agencies on a national, regional and global level to tackle match manipulation."
