Football official facing match-fixing related charges hospitalised for mysterious illness

The Daily Star, 5 Apr 2013
One of the three football officials facing match-fixing related charges was taken to a hospital with an undisclosed illness while the other two appeared in a Singapore court Friday and entered no pleas.
Referee Ali Sabbagh and assistant referees Ali Eid and Abdallah Taleb, all from Lebanon, were charged with "corruptly receiving gratification in the form of free sexual service" by Singapore's Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.
The bureau said the men accepted "free sexual service" in return for attempting to fix an Asian Football Confederation Cup match.
On Friday, Eid was admitted to Singapore General Hospital after complaining of being ill. He is expected to appear in court on Monday. Full story
