Seven people faced serious charges this week in Greece, when they were accused of game-fixing which causes much trouble for the credibility of football in the country.
In relation to the latest scandal, the country's soccer association suspended its operations on June 6 in order to provide authorities with an opportunity to reform the sport.
The investigation started when UEFA informed Greece of its report on irregular betting patters, mostly in Greek Cup and Division 2 games. The result of the action taken by the Greek authorities resulted in seven people being accused of fraud-related offences, and eight people investigated after allegedly making more than $22,000 each from state-controlled soccer pools.
According to the FA chief Sofoklis Pilavios, the suspension of the body's operations represents a response to both repeated cases of fan violence at Greek matches, and to allegations of corruption in the domestic game. He added that Greek soccer had fallen into the 'hands of hooligans, violence, and match-fixers.'
