Snookers governing body, the WPBSA, has released a statement after giving player Stephen Lee a 12 year ban and a £40,000 fine for match fixing.
The former world number five from Trowbridge fixed seven matches.
We take no pride in having to deal with such serious issues. However this demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that snooker is free from corruption. It is an important part of our anti-corruption approach that players found to be involved in fixing matches or any aspect of a match are severely dealt with. We work closely with partners globally and the message we are sending is that if you get involved in match fixing you will be found out and removed from the sport
