The New Zealand government has amended its Crimes Act 1961 to include match-fixing in it, to give "greater certainty to law enforcement agencies and international sporting bodies".

While existing legislation might have covered match-fixing under other offences such as fraud, this amendment will for the first time deal directly with fixing as a crime.

This was part of a new sports match-fixing policy announced by New Zealand sport and recreation minister Murray McCully.
