OCI Apologises Over Rio Olympics Ticketing Scandal

Judge Carroll Moran said Pro10, the authorised ticket reseller for the Rio Olympics was not fit for objective, and was not appointed in a transparent manner.

As was customary the Olympic Council of Ireland as a limited company was subject to scrutiny by the Director of Corporate Enforcement, government departments and was subject to an annual audit by worldwide auditors, in the 27 years of my stewardship the auditor's report was always clear, clean and published without qualifications.

Hickey, a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), claims the report contains "significant inaccuracies".

"Because of the ongoing trial in Brazil now is not the time to address these serious inaccuracies, in time I propose on the proclamation of my innocence to address all issues".

Mr Hickey alleges the report contains significant flaws and inaccurate assumptions but states now is not the time to address them. Regrettably the Moran Inquiry has failed to include the full suite of correspondence between my solicitors and the Moran Inquiry that addressed all of the issues in dispute.

Bottomline Technologies, Inc. (EPAY) Hits New 1-Year High at $29.76
The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at this hyperlink . Hood River Capital Management LLC bought a new stake in Bottomline Technologies during the second quarter worth $11,131,000.

Last week, Shane Ross, Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, said he could not comment on the report ahead of its publication.

It's expected to clear former Olympic Council of Ireland President Pat Hickey of criminal charges.

Moran employed forensic lawyers to study the OCI's accountancy practices and did not find any mismanagement of funds. At these meetings myself, the Officers and Executive Committee received approval by true democratic means and election which in itself confirms and supports adherence to all concepts of corporate governance.

The report is critical that a sterling bank account set up with Lloyds Bank before London 2012 continued to be used by the OCI after those Olympic Games.

The report examines allegations of ticket touting, and the close relationship between THG Sports owner Marcus Evans and Mr Hickey.
