The three were found out before the game and replaced by alternate officials.

Match referee, Ali Sabbagh along with his two assistants, Ali Eid and Abdallah Taleb took the services worth $400 following an agreement with a Singapore-based syndicate.

The two assistants have each received sentences of three months while the judge is taking time to consider Sabbagh's sentence as he was the one who convinced the other two to accepted the services.
