In late 2005 and early 2006, many people, mainly players, trainers, and players’ agents, were suspected of having played an active or passive role in fixing matches in the Belgian Division I competition.
Criminal investigations were opened very quickly, and lasted for several years.
Certain players, such as Mr Mitu, were laid off on serious grounds following the events in question. One case is still pending before the Employment Court and cannot be ruled on until the criminal proceedings have been closed.
At the same time, many players and trainers have been subjected to disciplinary proceedings.
