Turkish prosecutor seeks jail for Fenerbahce chairman-TV

ISTANBUL, (Reuters) – A Turkish prosecutor requested  a court jail the chairman of league champions Fenerbahce pending  trial on charges of match-fixing on Friday, TV reports said, in  an investigation which could result in the club being stripped  of its title.
The court was expected to rule on the request to imprison  Aziz Yildirim pending trial later on Friday.

If jailed, he will  join 25 people already remanded in custody in connection with  manipulation in 19 matches, which Turkey’s prime minister said  has stained Turkey’s image.
