Footballer Moses Swaibu in court on match-fixing charge

A footballer has appeared in court accused of being involved in a match-fixing conspiracy in the UK.

Former Conference South player Moses Swaibu, 24, is charged with conspiring to defraud bookmakers.

Swaibu, of Tooley Street, Bermondsey, south London, was granted unconditional bail by Birmingham magistrates.

He will appear with four other men charged in connection with the inquiry at the city's crown court on 7 March.

Michael Boateng and Hakeem Adelakun, who are both 22 and play for Conference South side Whitehawk FC in Brighton, were charged with conspiring to influence the course of unspecified football matches in December.

Chann Sankaran, a 33-year-old Singapore national, and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, a 43-year-old with dual UK and Singapore nationality, are charged with the same offence.

They were charged after an inquiry by the National Crime Agency.
