IOC and Interpol meet to combat match fixing & illegal betting
IOC and Interpol have increased their collaboration to combat match-fixing and illegal betting.
International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Interpol (International Police agency) have increased their collaboration to combat match-fixing and illegal betting.
To enhance the cooperation between the two bodies, the IOC President Thomas Bach on 9 September 2014 met with secretary general of the international police agency Ronald Noble and discussed the issue. The discussion was focused on the risks related to the manipulation of competitions, intelligence gathering, the conducting of investigations and prosecution procedures.
The meet was based on the basis of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that was signed between Interpol and IOC. Apart from this in the recent past, IOC to monitor any suspicious betting patterns during the Olympic or other sports events, set up an Integrity Betting Intelligence System.
