Our paper of record might feel justified in updating their correction and apology on an article dated 9th August:

Quote:
There is no suggestion of any direct connection between either Pat Hickey or Stephan Hickey and the criminal investigation into alleged illegal ticket sales being undertaken by authorities in Rio. We are happy to make this clear and we apologise to both for the error and the upset caused.

A simple fraud is to keep a transaction entirely outside of the company's financial recording system. It doesn't matter what accountant you hire they won't find a trace by looking at the company's records.

Imagine a bar manager who buys his own vodka and sells it in your premises. He's running a business within your business. Counting the till and doing the stock take won't find any problem.

Olympic Committee reminder:

Quote:
February 2007:
"The International Olympic Committee on Friday rebuked Dick Pound, head of the World Anti-Doping Agency, for comments it said had impugned the integrity of cycling star Lance Armstrong...The statements by Pound, who has been widely criticized for prematurely or inaccurately condemning athletes subject to international drug testing, ignited a public clash between him and Armstrong....The IOC endorsed the ethics commission's carefully worded finding that Pound's public remarks "could have been regarded as likely to impugn the probity" of Armstrong. The remarks, it added, were imprudent in light of the Olympic charter's goal of "a spirit of friendship, solidarity, and fair play" within the movement."

Dick Pound is a great name.

Quite weighty too. Not as much as Sharon Stone, though.

Sounds like Snoop Dogg's X-rated production company.

Bizarre stuff - the Brazilian police are certainly different from the Irish police! Did the Commissioner of Police not have better things to do with his time than to take a call from an Irish radio chat show? It seems that keeping a high media profile is part of the Brazilian police process.

That so-and-so Duffy would certainly acquit Hickey is he was on a jury at his trial, irrespective of the evidence.

He gets paid €416,893 per year. I'm not sure it's him that's the dope.

Kevin Mallon seems to be the forgotten man in all this! Arrested and thrown into Bangu about 2 weeks before Hickey without a peep from anyone here. Barely mentioned in passing by Joe there in his "grilling" of the Rio Police commissioner.

Seems that you have to be of a certain status here in Ireland to get the state broadcaster to agitate on your behalf.

€417K!!! for a radio show? A radio show that gets snotty about someone being arrested on film? I think I died a little inside.

How many Olympics or World Cups would Joe Duffy* have attended?

On a completely unrelated note, where would he have gotten tickets?


*Replace Joe Duffy with any suspiciously sympathetic mouthpiece.
