Yes it does, in 2013 a Singaporean man was detained for over 2 years for suspicion of being the mastermind behind a global football match-fixing syndicate.

Tan Seet Eng, also known as Dan Tan, was imprisoned in October 2013 after Italian authorities accused him of directing a global crime ring that corrupted Italian matches and other international games. He has repeatedly denied any misconduct.

Case 2:

Wilson Raj Perumal (born in Singapore) is a convicted match-fixer.

Perumal has been charged in various match-fixing incidents, including Asiagate in 2007-2009 and the Finnish match-fixing affair in 2008-2011. In 1995, he was sentenced to prison in Singapore for match-fixing.  Perumal came to England in the same year on behalf of a Singaporean match-fixing leader to manipulate two FA Cup matches.
