The latest twist in the sorry saga that is the ticket touting scandal involving the Olympic Committee of Ireland (OCI), now Pat Hickey’s legal team says that his arrest has ‘no legal support.’
Mr. Hickey was due to appear in a Brazilian court today, on charges of ticket touting and illegal marketing. It is unclear whether or not this will happen.
Now, Mr. Hickey’s lawyer, Arthur Lavigne says: “Mr Hickey has been arrested due to suppositions that are not supported by any material evidence or proof of the alleged facts presented by the police.”
“His arrest has no legal support.”
“The investigation did not bring one single slight indication that Mr Hickey could be involved with the facts therein investigated, and his detention was required by the police authority under mere assumptions.”
The case continues.
