BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) - A match-fixing trial in Hungary with 12 defendants, including the alleged Singaporean head of a criminal organization suspected of rigging games around the world, has started anew after a change of court and leading judge.

The other 11 suspects are Hungarian, including former players, coaches and referees. The case includes a handful of matches suspected of having been fixed by Tan Seet Eng of Singapore or his associates. Eng, also known as Dan Tan, is being tried in absentia.

The original trial began in January 2014 but was transferred to a new court a few months ago for administrative reasons.

Katalin Kovacs Boszormenyi, the new head judge, said Friday she hoped to speed up proceedings and reach a verdict within a year.
