IOC suspends Brazil Olympic Committee, Rio 2016 boss over vote-buying case

IOC Suspends Brazilian Olympic Committee due to Corruption Scandal

The decision comes after the arrest on Thursday of the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee, Carlos Nuzman, due to his alleged participation in a purchase of juries to get the venue of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro past year.

"While Olympic athletes fought for the dream of winning a gold medal, managers tucked away gold in Switzerland", Schneider said.

Fusion Media or anyone involved with Fusion Media will not accept any liability for loss or damage as a result of reliance on the information including data, quotes, charts and buy/sell signals contained within this website.

In an arrest order, Bretas said Nuzman's wealth grew by 416 percent between 2006 and 2016 and that he had assets overseas that were only declared after the vote-buying investigation began. With regard to the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB), the EB states that the COB and its President, Carlos Nuzman, were responsible for the candidature of Rio de Janeiro in 2009.

Authorities allege that former Rio de Janeiro governor Sergio Cabral, who is serving a 14-year prison term for bribery and money laundering, masterminded the plot.

The time made her the second-fastest American marathoner in history behind only Deena Kastor, who clocked 2:19.36 in 2006. Chicago was Rupp's fourth marathon and he has never finished worse than third in a 42.2K with a victory at the 2016 U.S.

Nuzman was arrested on Thursday by the federal police in connection with a case on bribing to bring the 2016 Summer Olympics to Rio de Janeiro.

Investigators believe US$2 million in bribes was paid to Papa Massata Diack, the son of Senegalese IOC member and former International Association of Athletics Federations president Lamine Diack, before the 2009 vote.

The gold is stored in a depository in Geneva, Switzerland.

Brazilian officials said last month Nuzman was the "lynchpin" in a plot to bribe the International Olympic Committee into awarding Rio the Games.

The decision to suspend the Brazilian governing body and its president came after an emergency meeting by its executive board.
