'Turn yourself in', Korea's K-League tells match-fixers

Following the uncovering of a match fixing scandal, South Korea's K-League has announced measures to prevent a recurrence and to punish those implicated in corruption.

Based on an agreement reached among players, coaches and officials from the league`s 16 teams, those directly and indirectly involved in match fixing have until 13 June to voluntarily confess their involvement to the league.

The league will ask for a criminal investigation after conducting an independent probe based on the information. Those who voluntarily provide information and request leniency from prosecutors will receive reduced punishment, the Dong-A Ilbo reported.
