One of Taiwan’s most respected baseball coaches was questioned by prosecutors Thursday over his alleged involvement in a match-fixing scandal, officials and media said.
Television images showed Lu Wen-sheng, the head coach of Uni-President Lions, and his wife Hsieh Fu-yu being separately escorted by investigators to the Panchiao District Court near Taipei for questioning.
Agents suspected that Lu’s wife had passed on details about the Lions, including the starting lineups and injuries of individual players, to the leader of an underground sports betting ring, local newspapers said.
The papers, including Apple Daily, said agents and prosecutors had tapped the couple’s phones for half a year following a tip-off.
Su Tai-an, manager of the Lions, said Lu has been suspended as head coach for the time being while investigations were underway. Chief prosecutor Cheng Hsin-hung was not reachable for comment.
for his generous support.
