Brazilian betting fraud investigation delayed until August amid parliamentary recess
Brazil's Parliamentary Investigation Commission's inquiry into sports betting fraud and match-fixing scandals has been postponed until August
The Brazilian Parliamentary Investigation Commission (CPI), tasked with investigating betting fraud and match-fixing in sports, will not convene until August due to the legislative focus shifting to fiscal matters.
This decision was announced by Arthur Lira, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Parliament will enter recess from 18 July until 1 August, further delaying the investigation.
The results of the CPI's probe could significantly impact the finalization of Brazil's federal sports betting regime, which is currently awaiting recommendations on sports integrity.
