The former president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee, Carlos Arthur Nuzman, was sentenced Thursday (25) by Judge Marcelo Pretas, of the Seventh Federal Court in Rio de Janeiro, to 30 years, 11 months and eight days in prison. In addition to paying a fine of 1,344 days, in the amount of one minimum wage unit, for offenses of passive corruption, criminal organization, currency evasion and money laundering.
In addition to Nuzman, ex-governor Sergio Cabral and former Rio 2016 commission director of operations Leonardo Greiner was also indicted. The accusations point to vote-buying from members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to elect Rio as host of the 2016 Olympics.
Sergio Cabral was sentenced to ten years and eight months in prison for passive corruption, while Leonardo Greiner was sentenced to 13 years and 10 months for passive corruption and criminal organization.
The former president of COB has been the target of the unfair play process and will be able to appeal freely. The defense alleges that the trial took place without concrete evidence and believes a turnaround in the case.
President of COB for 22 years, Nusman was arrested at his home, in Leblon, in 2017, after a complaint by the Federal Public Ministry, which linked the president’s name to alleged fraud in the election of Rio de Janeiro to host the 2016 Olympic Games and businessman Arthur Soares known as “” King Arthur”
MPF has had international legal cooperation from Antigua and Barbuda, the United States, the United Kingdom and France. The French prosecutor’s office even obtained evidence that voters were bought into choosing the venue for the 2016 Olympics.
