Emenike, who was playing for Karabukspor at the time, was reportedly promised a transfer to Fenerbahce in return for not playing in a match against the team — an allegation Karabukspor has denied. The club said Emenike was injured a week before the game and has a doctor's certificate to prove it.
Emenike faces maximum three years in prison if convicted.
In December, Turkey's Parliament approved a sharp reduction in prison terms for match-fixing and hooliganism, a move that led to lighter sentences for any suspects found guilty in this scandal. Lawmakers overrode a veto by President Abdullah Gul, who had argued that the amendments gave "the impression of a special arrangement" for the suspects, including Yildirim.
Match-fixing can generate enormous profits and often involves crime syndicates. FIFA, the world soccer body, estimates that fixers make between $5 billion and $15 billion in profits each year from manipulating matches across all sports, which attract $500 billion in wagers with legal and unlicensed operators.
Match-fixing scandals were also reported last year in Africa and Asia.
