The police in Rio have court orders issued over the weekend to seize the passports of another 6 over the alleged sale of olympic tickets, presumably so that they can assist in enquiries. There's no suggestion that any of them have committed any crime.

From the OCI executive committee:

Dermot Heenehan
Kevin Kielty
Stephen Martin

Also (court order issued on Saturday):

Willie O'Brien
Linda O'Reilly
John Delaney (CEO of the FAI; on the OCI executive committee).


So, how many of these 6 were sharp-witted and nimble-footed enough to make it to the exits beforehand?

Did Delaney leave his Lovely Emma behind in Rio?

I mean he had to get back to attend the emergency board meeting of OCI meeting tonight. Emma could deputise for him at all the end of Olympics parties tonight in Rio.

Be careful what you say about Ms English. We don't want to be accused of cyber bullying

Transfer deadline is next week, so the boys from Brazil better move on the paper work if they want to get him signed up soon.

Is it possible that the Brazilian investigation is taking another direction? John Delaney doesn't own a passport, it is the property at all times of the DFAT under Irish law.
Could there possibly be a cross over between this demand and a historic investigation? Was Delaney in Brazil in the last few weeks?

Amongst all this banter of which country is less corrupt, Brazil or Ireland, it is worth noting that JBS (worlds largest meat processor) the new owners of Moy Park (chicken bits supplier to just about everyone) are to move their global HQ from Brazil to Dublin according to the Farmers Journal.

Make of it what you will.

They probably figured it would be easier to score tickets for top events.

In Ireland, presumably.

Brazilian police have confiscated passports, laptops and phones from OCI officials in Rio today

"The Olympic Council of Ireland's first meeting in relation to the scandal is due to be held this evening.

It will be attended by 11 of the 12 board members including Sonia O'Sullvan, FAI chief executive John Delaney and Swim Ireland's Sarah Keane..."
Scandal! What scandal? It's just a little misunderstanding that will all be cleared up in the next seven years or so.

Delaney's mate, Alan Kelly TD might be concerned about developments. Where is Alan located now?
Under the kitchen table sucking his thumb?
