Berezovsky's Brazilian footballers accused of shady deals

Berezovsky's Brazilian footballers accused of shady deals

In Sao Paolo Brazilian police have released pictures of a raid on the offices of the football club Corinthians.

Russian billionaire Boris Berezovsky has been accused of using the team as a front to launder money, although he denies the accusations.

Investigators are looking into where money invested in the club has ended up.

A London-based Media Sports Investment Group company gave millions of dollars to Corinthians to sign players, but there is no record of the money.
