Irish man arrested for touting tickets


The OCI is now investigating why tickets allocated to the organisation were found in the possession of the individuals arrested by Rio de Janeiro police. Brazilian police yesterday said they recovered more than 1,000 tickets, believed to have been destined for the OCI, which were being sold for more than face value.

Investigative police in Brazil arrested a second employee who was working as an interpreter during the games in a Friday raid.

In their statement, the police noted that in 2014 the chief executive of THG, James Sinton, was detained in Rio de Janeiro, accused of forming part of a "ticketing mafia" for the World Cup in 2014.

THG Sports was Ireland's authorised ticket reseller for London 2012. Carnieri was detained on suspicion of false marketing.
