Lie detectors to stop SKorea football fixing

Lie detectors to stop SKorea football fixing

South Korean football authorities say they will use lie detectors to root out match-fixing schemes.
The K-League said Monday polygraph testing will help prevent more match-fixing scandals from erupting and better investigate those implicated in future scandals.
The K-League said it will also double the minimum yearly wage for league players to $22,670 to lessen the temptation to take bribes to fix games.
South Korean prosecutors have indicted about 70 footballers, gambling brokers and others for alleged involvement in the scandal.
A former K-League player who allegedly worked as a broker was found dead in an apparent suicide in May.
