Belgium launches whistleblowing portal to fight sporting corruption

Belgium is stepping up efforts to tackle sports-related corruption such as match fixing with the launch of a new national reporting platform.

The portal allows concerned parties to anonymously report suspected cases of sporting manipulation.

The new portal is operated by the Belgian Federal Police and shares information with municipal authorities, police investigative units, the Belgian Gaming Commission, and National Lottery and sports governing bodies as appropriate.

"This allows us to have a broad and integrated approach to fight, detect and sanction these practices, but also avoid them through other prevention and education," the Belgian Federal Police explained.

It said the portal was launched in response to the growing problem of sporting corruption across the world, which usually takes the form of match-fixing for financial gain through betting.

"This practice is not only illegal, but it is also harmful to sport in general because it undermines the integral values of honesty, integrity and fair play," the Federal Police added.
