Kevin Mallon, one of the main suspects in the Olympic ticket touting scandal, is set to be released from jail ‘within hours,’ according to local media.
Mr. Mallon had been arrested earlier this month while in possession of a large number of tickets for the Rio Games. The tickets had been earmarked for public sale.
A statement released by THG, the firm that Mr. Mallon’s a director of, said:
“In line with our previous statements on this matter THG has welcomed the public enquiry in Ireland into these matters and believes that the company and its executives will be vindicated when all of the evidence is reviewed,”.
“We will continue to work to secure Kevin’s full release and his return to Dublin. Meanwhile, THG is providing full support to Kevin and his family and will continue to seek to ensure their privacy at this difficult time.”
