Several Australian Athletes ARRESTED In Rio

Several Australian athletes are being questioned in Rio for alleged accreditation tampering at the basketball semi finals.

The Herald Sun is reporting that nine athletes from three different sports are being questioned for tampering with their passes.

Australian Olympic Committee lawyer Fiona de Jong is currently with the athletes at the police station.

The IOC and Rio police have been cracking down on accreditations it the wake of the Ryan Locate scandal earlier in the week.

Media team boss Mike Tancred told the Herald Sun ‘’Some people tried to tamper with their accreditation,”

“They’ve got stopped by people over at the stadium.

“It’s a matter for the IOC as they’re in charge of accreditations. If you tamper with accreditations, it is their problem.

“We’re over there with the lawyer.”
