Australian former champion threatened Ukrainian table tennis with 'corrupt bets'
A former international table tennis star was arrested in Newcastle and charged for allegedly making bets on fixed matches in relation to an international union.
This morning in his home, Adam Green was arrested by the police.
Police alleged that the former star sent money to Ukrainian associates linked to the country's pandemic table tennis circuit.
At the same time the police suspected Mr Green was using his name and those of a minimum of eight associates to bet Australian bookies in the same matches.
Police claimed that the trade union made the alleged corrupt bets more than half a million dollars.
Mr. Green, 40, has been accused of using corrupt behavior information to bet on events and of deliberately dealing with crime proceeds intended to cover up.
On January 28, the Local Court of Newcastle granted him a strict conditional bail.
