The arrests of officials involved in match fixing and corruption in South African football has totalled 22 after three more people were arrested on Monday.
Premier Soccer League referee Enoch Radebe, and Dumisani Ndlovu of Hellenic Football Club were arrested in Durban, and Dolf Rousseau the owner of Basotho Tigers was arrested in Johannesburg said Superintendent Selby Bokaba, spokesperson for national police commissioner Jackie Selebi.
However, the trio were granted bail, R5 000 for Radebe and Ndlovu and R3 000 for Rousseau.
This brought to 22 the number of people arrested in connection with match fixing as part of "Operation Dribble", said Bokaba.
'Operation Dribble' has broken a massive syndicate involving several top referees who have allegedly accepted bribes to influence the outcome of matches.
Meanwhile, Sturu Pasiya, boss of newly promoted Bush Bucks, has been denied a bail reduction by the East London magistrate's court.
Pasiya was arrested last Thursday, along with Bush Bucks co-director Bongile Nkola and were granted bail of R15 000 each on Friday.
However, their lawyers objected the bail fee, and on Monday made an application to the fee reduced, reasoning that the huge bail amount would give the impression that their clients were facing more serious charges than the other implicated officials and referees.
The duo's lawyers applied for the reduction after top PSL referee Petros Mathabela was granted R1000 bail for the same charge.
However, the court ruled that the duo could not be granted the same amount as they are club bosses.
