• England FA hit by another corruption crisis - report

    Hours after Sam Allardyce was sacked as England manager for inappropriate conduct, the Football Association was hit by a new crisis as eight current and former Premier League managers stand accused of receiving 'bungs' for player transfers after a long-running investigation by The Daily Telegraph newspaper. The British newspaper said it had agreed to hand over its findings to the FA and the police after its undercover reporters discovered "widespread evidence of corruption in the English game" by filming soccer agents boasting about how many managers they had paid off. The revelation comes 24 hours after Allardyce was shown negotiating a deal worth 400,000 pounds ($520,840) to represent a firm seeking advice on the transfer market.

  • Singapore urged to get tougher on money-laundering

    Singapore must take more aggressive action against complex cross-border money-laundering including prosecuting individuals and seizing illicit proceeds, a global financial crimes watchdog said Tuesday. The Paris-based Financial Action Task Force (FATF) said in a review the city-state has made significant improvements in its anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing framework since the last assessment in 2008. It said, however, that Singapore needs to do more, especially in prosecuting bigger cases where the crime is committed in another country and the proceeds are laundered in Singapore, one of Asia's top financial centres.

  • Syrian army retakes Aleppo district as bombs rain down

    Syria's army took control of a rebel-held district in central Aleppo on Tuesday, after days of heavy air strikes that have killed dozens and sparked allegations of war crimes. In the first advance since announcing plans last week to retake all of the divided city, pro-government troops seized the Farafira district northwest of Aleppo's historic citadel, a military source told AFP. The push follows several days of Syrian and Russian air strikes on rebel-held Aleppo neighbourhoods -- some of the fiercest bombardment of the five-year conflict so far -- after a ceasefire deal brokered by Moscow and Washington collapsed last week.
