I am not going to spoon feed you. If you dont know who Pat Hickey is then this is of no interest to you. If you dont want to "do all the work" then dont. I couldn't care less.
So it IS ok to just dump news articles in AH without any context, explanation or opinion. Right, the charter is obviously wrong.

Sadly, it is a fact that many involved in sport in Ireland have been aware of the Hickey family for some and their tie up with Evans , Collins and others.
He is as innocent as CJ Haughey was!

According to Brazilian newspaper Estadao, Hickey, also President of the Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI), was arrested this morning at his hotel here in Rio.

The 71-year-old was also reportedly taken to hospital after being taken ill at the time he got arrested.

Its great news, especially as Hickey has anointed John Delaney as his successor at the OCI in 2020. That appointment will get brought forward now and we will finally see Delaney gone from the FAI. Every cloud and all that.....

Police say Mr Hickey, who also heads the Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI), tried to escape when they came for him.
They say he slid his Olympic pass under the door when police came knocking and fled into the adjacent hotel room, where his son had been staying until recently.
After he was arrested he was taken ill and received medical attention, reports say.

Presuming Delaney is not involved.
PRO 10 are a predominantly soccer agency and have never sold a ticket in their existence , and Marcus Evans who has a warrant out on him by the Brazilians made his fortune as a ticket scalper and is/was the owner of Ipswich Town FC.
Lots of soccer involvement in this scandal.
