Australia’s Southern Stars Case
On 15 September 2013 Victoria Police arrested up to ten people, including Southern Stars players David Obaze, Nick McKoy and Joe Woolley and coach, Zaya Younan. Later in September criminal charges were laid via the Victoria Police and the FFA handed Noel, Woolley, David Obaze, Nicholas McKoy and coach Zia Younan initial suspensions which prevented them from being involved in any football-related activity in Australia while the investigation was ongoing. Those bans were also extended worldwide by FIFA. Two British footballers, Reiss Noel and Joe Woolley received life-time bans from FIFA due to the incident. Gerry Subramaniam, a Malaysian national and the Australian ring-leader of the betting syndicate behind the match fixing, was sentenced to three years jail in Australia, to be followed by deportation to Malaysia.
