According to an unbylined AP story, IOC officials were "reportedly surprised at their hotel" by a court official notifying them of the legal dispute involving the 2016 Olympic golf course in Rio de Janeiro.
According to Sergio Antunes Lima Jr., the lawyer of the company which is claiming ownership of the area where the 2016 Rio committee says the golf course will be built, El Moutawakel and the other IOC members seemed confused when they were approached by the court official and there was a lot of discussion until lawyers from the 2016 Rio organising committee finally arrived.
Lima Jr., who said he was accompanying the court official, said Rio 2016 Organising Committee President Carlos Nuzman also arrived later.
The Rio committee, which last year went through the embarrassment of having to fire several employees who illegally downloaded files from British organisers during the London Games, said it was not involved in the court order and gave support to the IOC officials only because the document presented to them was in Portuguese and dealt with Brazilian law.
The document has been sent to Lausanne for forensic and legal analysis...
