Following on from the partnership signed last year at the 13th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, UNODC and International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) on Tuesday unveiled a new resource guide that will help law enforcement and sports organisations better detect and investigate match-fixing and cases of sports-results manipulation.
Launched during a side event of the Seventh meeting of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group on the Prevention of Corruption, which was attended by representatives of the 178 states parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption, the new resource guide is the result of an extensive 18-month project led by the UNODC and ICSS. It is available on UNODC’s website.
The new UNODC-ICSS guide has been developed for investigators in both law enforcement and sports organisations and also to raise awareness among policy makers about the threat of match-fixing. It provides comprehensive information on the different factors, approaches and practical investigation techniques needed to conduct effective investigations into match-fixing. It also provides guidance on how law enforcement and sport organisations, and other relevant stakeholders, can effectively work together to detect and investigate match-fixing across different jurisdictions.
