The top football manager faces 6 years in prison for match-fixing
Oleg Bayan is accused in 11 episodes of unlawful influence on the outcomes of sports competitions. The prosecutor requested a sentence of 6 years in a correctional colony for Bayan, along with a fine of 150,000 rubles.
The investigation believes that from August 2018 to April 2019, Bayan offered bribes to judges ranging from 50,000 to 250,000 rubles. This pertains to matches of the PFL (FNL-2).
Not long ago, representatives of the Novorossiysk football club 'Chernomorets' were convicted, who were also linked to the case of FC 'Chaika.' It was established that the two teams played a fixed match in May 2019.
At that time, the defendants admitted their guilt for the fixed match. As a result, the Zheleznodorozhny District Court of Voronezh sentenced them all to fines. In particular, the former coach Hazret Dyishekov was ordered to pay 400,000 rubles. The other defendants were fined from 290,000 to 350,000 rubles.
