Rizek explains Textor’s accusations of match-fixing

The Civil Police, through the Consumer Police, opened an investigation following a demonstration by the Public Ministry of Rio de Janeiro. The News of Fact, which is being processed in the Temporary Thematic Group (GTT Desporto/MPRJ), led to the opening of the police investigation. There is an expectation that the businessman will present the evidence he claims to have of corruption in Brazilian football.

According to the Public Ministry, the investigation is being carried out in secret and, therefore, “there is no information that can be shared”.

Since then, Textor has never presented the evidence he claims to have. And, based on an artificial intelligence report, it raised suspicions of manipulation in Palmeiras games against Fortaleza (2022) and São Paulo (2023). The businessman responds to proceedings at the STJD. Both Palmeiras and São Paulo stated that they would sue him.
