Tayfur Havutcu, İstanbul Büyüksehir Belediyespor (İBB) players Ibrahim Akın and İskender Alın,

Sivasspor goalkeeper Korcan Celikay and Diyarbakırspor player Abdurrahman Yakut, who were released.

But, this does not mean they are of the hook ,just yet!

They are still suspect in the Turkish football scandal...

They will wait for their day in the court...

The trials will start on February 14,2012!

However, the suspects have been prohibited from traveling outside of the country.

After Turkish president Abdullah Gul, signs the new Law , there will be more releases from custody pending trial....

Parliament passed a law at the weekend reducing prison sentences for match-rigging from a maximum 12 years to three years!

There are now 23 jailed suspects out of a total of 93 suspects in the investigation, and 14 players stand accused for their alleged involvement in the match-fixing scandal.

What is so interesting , European football's ruling body UEFA has yet to comment on the latest developments in the case!

WE are waiting......
