IOC suspends Olympic official Nuzman in vote-buying case

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has suspended Brazil Olympic Committee and its president, Carlos Nuzman, amid an investigation into a vote-buying scheme to bring the Rio Games a year ago.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian national Olympic committee yesterday said in a statement that it will meet on Wednesday to discuss its suspension by the IOC. Therefore, the EB takes the following decision with immediate effect: "To suspend provisionally the Brazilian Olympic Committee", the IOC 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.

The decision came hours after Brazilian authorities investigating a 2016 Olympic vote-buying case asked for help from prosecutors in Switzerland. Police said in a statement that Carlos Nuzman, 75, was arrested on suspicion of corruption, money laundering and criminal association.


The committee said Nuzman would provisionally lose all the "the rights, prerogatives and functions" as a former IOC member and now an honorary member of the worldwide organization.

He only declared he owned 16 gold bars weighing 1kg each when he was questioned a month ago, prosecutors said.

The IOC added that the bans would not extend to Brazilian athletes. The latest scandal cast a pall over a meeting in Lima last month of the International Olympic Committee following the designation of Paris for the 2024 Games and Los Angeles as the 2028 host city.

The gold is stored in a depository in Geneva, Switzerland. He was an International Olympic Committee executive board member in October 2009 when he got a $300,000 payment linked to Brazil and the Diack family on the day Rio won.
