The judicial authorities have started a large-scale investigation into money-laundering. Ivan Leko may have received money with some transfers, and for fielding certain players. It is the second time he was questioned. According to unofficial reports, he may have earned money with the transfers of Mats Rits, Karlo Letica and Ivan Tomecak.
Leko left Club Brugge for Al AIn in the United Arab Emirates. He was in Hasselt with his lawyer Walter Van Steenbrugge. The investigation received a boost when Dejan Veljkovic, a football agent, started talking in order to obtain a lighter punishment.
