Former COB president Carlos Arthur Nuzman is sentenced to 30 years in prison

Carlos Arthur Nuzman, former president of the Olympic Committee of Brazil (COB), was sentenced this Thursday to 30 years, 11 months and eight days in prison. The penalty refers to the crimes of money laundering, passive corruption, criminal organization and currency evasion. Information is from the portal GIVE.

Nuzman’s conviction was carried out by Judge Marcelo Bretas, of the 7th federal criminal court of Rio de Janeiro, in the process of the “Unfair Play” operation, which investigates possible vote purchases that made Rio de Janeiro chosen to host the Olympic Games in 2016.

The former president of the COB has the right to appeal the decision in freedom. Still according to the GIVE, Nuzman’s defense claimed that there was no evidence for the conviction and is awaiting the change of decision with the appeal. He had already been arrested for the same investigation in 2017, but later obtained a habeas corpus and left prison.
