Jorge Kajuru (PSB-GO)vice president of Federal Senate Sports Committeeannounced that work on the CPI of Manipulation and Results of Football Games. The senator will be the president of the CPI, while Romário (PL-RJ)president of Sports Commissionwill be the rapporteur.

In an interview with “Senate Radio” this Tuesday (2/4), Kajuru said that he has already defined who will be the first to be called to give statements. And one of them will be John Textormajority shareholder of SAF do Botafogo. According to him, Textor intends to hand over the audios they have to the CPI before going to the public ministry.

John Textor said he has a recording of a referee collecting the bribe he was promised. But he doesn’t want to present the audio. He was summoned by the STJD and will be suspended for at least 120 days, where he will have to leave Brazil, he will not be able to sign anything else for Botafogo, nor appear at the stadiums, if he does not present what he has. He said he will present it to the MP. When are you going, pale face? It’s been two weeks now. He will also be asked to explain himself and, hopefully, he gave us a clue that he wants to present this audio to us in the Commission before the MP. That would be gold – said Kajuru.

Jorge Kajuru revealed that there is already 13 Series D games It is a Series B game (Londrina x Tombense) suspected of having result manipulation. Carlos Portinho (PL-RJ), Eduardo Girão (NOVO-CE), Leila Barros (PDT-DF) It is Espiridião Amin (PP-SC) They are some of the senators who have already shown interest in participating in the work of the CPI, according to Kajuru.

I told Romário that it’s high time we created the CPI on the Manipulation of Results of Football Games, so as not to give the impression that they are something against betting houses, because there are betting houses that are decent. The issue is the indecency of some results that no one can understand. For example, in Brasília, in two games, one team lost 6-0 and the other 5-0, nobody accepted it. In England, Tottenham lost a game 6-0, the players asked to return their income to the fans, embarrassed, and asked for an investigation. There, when there is complete and irrefutable proof, the player is banned, or the referee, the assistant… We already have the first summonses of managers, players, referees involved, and also corruptors – said the senator.

According to preliminary Senate reports, more than 100 football matches played in 2023 are under suspicion of manipulation to favor bettors.
