London:

Three men including a referee have been charged following allegations of computer hacking and the sharing of private information at the Football Association, police said on Friday.

Dean Mohareb, a 30-year-old referee, has been charged with perverting the course of justice and unauthorised access to computer data, while Liam Cliff, 18, and Vincent Rossi, 46, have been charged with perverting the course of justice.

All three live in the Manchester area in northwest England.

They will appear at Stockport Magistrates' Court on December 5, Greater Manchester Police said.

Mohareb, a Football League referee, is national referee development manager at the FA, making him a senior member of the referees department.

He was first arrested in October last year over allegations that he hacked a colleague's emails.

Police took away electrical items from his home on that occasion.

Mohareb was suspended by the FA in February. It is believed that the other two men are not FA employees.

The FA has declined to comment on the matter while legal proceedings are going on.

Two men of Singaporean nationality are due to appear before magistrates in Cannock, central England, on Friday charged over a match-fixing allegation.

The charges announced on Friday are not believed to be linked to the match-fixing probe.
