Policy: Tuesday’s action was part of an investigation into alleged irregularities relating to the way sponsors for the Games are selected.

“The controls that are ongoing are aimed at procedures that have been used for the selection of technological suppliers and sponsors, as well as the way people are employed in the foundation,” the prosecutor’s office in Milan said in a statement.

“No current director or employee of the foundation is under investigation,” it says.

The Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera writes that the organizing committee’s former executive director, Vincenzo Novari, is one of three people under investigation.

Novari left the job in 2020 and was replaced by current CEO Andrea Varnier.
