Carlos Nuzman was accused, along with three other people, of having paid $ 2 million to get 6 votes in the awarding of the Olympics and Paralympics. The former number one in Brazilian sport will appeal
Carlos Arthur Nuzman, top executive of the Organizing Committee of the Rio 2016 Olympics and former president of the COB (Olympic Committee of Brazil), was sentenced to 30 years, 11 months and eight days of imprisonment for crimes of corruption, criminal organization, money laundering. , tax evasion.
The decision of the seventh criminal justice section of Rio de Janeiro is the result of the Unfair Play operation, “dirty game”, which investigated the purchase of votes to choose the Wonderful City as the venue for the 2016 Olympics. Nuzman can still challenge the Decision: His lawyers argue that the judge sentenced him without evidence and are confident in acquittal when the court adjudicates on appeal. The Federal Public Ministry had filed a complaint against Nuzman, the former governor of Rio Sérgio Cabral Filho, the entrepreneur Arthur César de Menezes Soares Filho, the former director of operations of the Rio 2016 Committee Leonardo Gryner. The three allegedly created a cartel to bribe Senegalese athletics leader Lamine Diack and his son Papa Diack to get votes.
In the same trial, Sérgio Cabral Filho was sentenced to ten years and eight months in prison for corruption. Instead, Leonardo Gryner was inflicted 13 years and 10 months for corruption and criminal organization. It should be noted that Cabral has already been in prison for other crimes for five years. And right from prison he admitted, in front of judge Marcelo Bretas, that he had paid about 2 million dollars in exchange for up to six votes in the meeting of the International Olympic Committee that awarded Rio the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
