The state-run Anatolia news agency reported that among a first group of suspects being quizzed by an Istanbul court are Nigerian forward Emmanuel Emenike, goalkeeper Korcan Celikay and Sezer Ozturk. The court will decide whether to press charges and order their arrests.

Police detained 59 people in a sweep Sunday and Monday as part of its investigation into alleged fixing in the Turkish top division last season. They include Fenerbahce President Aziz Yildirim and at least five other club officials.
