More bad news for Greek government

11:02 am on 24 June 2011

Greece is bracing itself for the fallout from a massive match-fixing football scandal.

Two Superleague club presidents are among 15 people identified by the Athens prosecutor for alleged involvement in a match-fixing scandal the government has described as the "darkest page in the history of Greek football".

The prosecutor has also filed charges against another 70 people who have not yet been named.

The Greek government responded to the arrests by pledging to get to the bottom of match-fixing allegations as part of a wider effort to tackle corruption in the debt-ridden country.
