Asian Bookies Secret (3) - A bookmaker with recorded a turnover of £31 million in 2009 has been searched three times by police - Big bets

Officers searched the Wembley offices of  a Hong-Kong controlled bookmaking and gaming group, for the first time in November 2009. A second search followed a year later and the most recent was four weeks ago.
It claims to be “one of the largest licensed betting brokers in the world”, and describes its sports betting arm as “a very exclusive betting service” catering to “an extremely niche market”.
The Bochum investigation has seen six members of a match-fixing operation convicted for their part in the suspected manipulation of more than 300 club and international matches. Ante Sapina, the Croatian leader of the operation, was jailed for 5½ years.

The company recorded a turnover of £31 million in 2009, and lists three other directors of Chinese extraction, according to its most recently published accounts.
