NZ Police is continuing to investigate allegations of race-fixing in the harness racing industry.

To date, 13 people have been charged in relation to Operation Inca, a long-running investigation by Police’s National Organised Crime Group into alleged corruption in the harness-racing industry.

The investigation began with information supplied by the Racing Integrity Unit (RIU).

In conjunction with investigators from the RIU, detectives from the National Organised Crime Group have this week been conducting further enquiries in the Auckland region.

A number of people have been interviewed as part of this week’s enquiries, and betting anomalies have been identified in at least one race in May 2018.

The RIU is considering charges relating to the breach of rules around driver betting in relation to these anomalies.

Further arrests and charges by Police are also possible.
