Police have detained two people, including a participant’s agent, as a part of an global money laundering and corruption investigation in soccer.
Brussels prosecutors said that several raids happened on Wednesday and Tuesday in London, Belgium and Monaco in June.
Police cooperated with their Monaco and British counterparts, resulting in the arrest of this agent in Monaco.
Prosecutors said his helper was arrested in the Wallonia region of Belgium, in the Liege region.
Brussels national prosecutor’s office didn’t provide details of their seven raids but stated they’re linked to a wave of hunts in April when Belgian police probed the offices of Anderlecht and also the Football Association.
This instance is not associated with the huge corruption scandal that dissipates Belgian football a year when police carried out 57 police raids and around Europe at a probe into fraud and match-fixing.
