Rio 2016 leader Nuzman to be released from jail

Rio 2016 leader Nuzman to be released from jail”

The former head of Brazil's Olympic Committee (COB) Carlos Nuzman, and five others have been charged with corruption by the Federal Prosecutors Officer Tuesday.

It is not clear when exactly Nuzman will leave the prison, although it is expected today, but he will remain forbidden from leaving Rio de Janeiro. Brazil's Superior Tribunal of Justice ruled that Nuzman's arrest was not proportional to the charges he faced.

Although the Court found the incarceration of the former official as "disproportionate to the crimes" Nuzman is said to have committed, the former COB president has been prohibited from leaving Rio de Janeiro without authorization, has handed the Court his passport and cannot talk to others involved in the case.

He must also appear in court whenever requested.

After his arrest, Nuzman resigned from his position as COB President, where he was serving his sixth consecutive term.

The IOC provisionally suspended Nuzman a day after he was arrested, along with the COB, which was responsible for Rio's bid to stage the Games.

Judges had previously recommended that Nuzman not be granted any sort of bail in order to "preserve the environment of free collection of his performance and interference, which would surely be impaired with freedom".

Those charged included Brazilian businessman Arthur Soares, who prosecutors said acted as an intermediary, and Lamine Diack, a former IOC member from Senegal and former head of the International Association of Athletics Federation.

Machado was quoted in O'Globo as claiming that this acceptance is "merely formal" but it indicated that the investigation is continuing as before.

Prosecutors said Nuzman and Gryner "promoted, formed, financed, and integrated a criminal organization aimed at committing the crimes of corruption and embezzlement in detriment of the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's Olympic Committee and the organizing committee of the Rio 2016 Olympics".

The IOC nominated Rio de Janeiro to host the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in October 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark over Chicago, Tokyo and Madrid.
