BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — A Hungarian soccer club with several current and former players suspected of match-fixing says its director has killed himself.
The Budapest-based REAC says Robert Kutasi died Thursday. Police say he jumped off a building.
Six REAC players were taken into custody by police on Tuesday. They are under preliminary arrest in a match-fixing scandal in which 25 people have been questioned by Hungarian prosecutors.
Despite the arrests of its players, REAC and its officials are not suspected of being involved in the match-fixing.
Kutasi was a leading anti-corruption figure in Hungarian soccer and told the sports daily Nemzeti Sport earlier this week that “my life is over” because of the case.
