Brazil's Olympic Committee chief Carlos Nuzman (C) is escorted from his home by federal police in Rio de Janeiro on October 5, 2017. The pair was charged by authorities with corruption, money laundering and participating in a criminal operation.
Brazil's Federal Police arrested Thursday morning, Carlos Arthur Nuzman the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB), and the general director of the Rio 2016 Organizing Committee, Leonardo Gryner.

Brazilian newspaper O'Globo talked to investigators who revealed that $155,000 (U.S.) was found at Nuzman's residence in five different currencies and 16 one kilogram gold bars were recently deposited in Switzerland.
Investigators also searched the offices of Brazil's Olympic Committee and several companies suspected of links to the scandal.
At that time authorities confiscated Nuzman's Brazilian and Russian passports preventing him from traveling to Lima, Peru for the International Olympic Committee session to name two host cities Paris 2024 and LA 2028.
They believe Nuzman was an intermediary in a payment in 2009 to Lamine Diack, who was president of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) during the selection process.
