Ref banned for fixing

A Chinese court has sentenced four soccer referees, including a former World Cup match official, to up to seven years in jail for involvement in match-fixing and gambling, state media reported on Thursday.

About 60 local players, referees, coaches and officials were put on trial in December following a two-year investigation into match-fixing.  Lu Jun, a referee at the 2002 World Cup, was sentenced by the Intermediate People's Court in the northeastern city of Dandong to five years and six months for accepting bribes.
