The Executive Council of the Olympic Council of Ireland has said they will not view an independent report into ticket arrangements for the Rio Olympics.

Grant Thornton are conducting the report into the alleged mis-selling of tickets for the games in Rio de Janeiro.

The controversy saw OCI President Pat Hickey, who has temporarily stood aside, arrested by Brazilian police. 

In a statement made following a meeting of the council, the OCI said that once this report is completed it will be sealed and passed directly by Grant Thornton to Judge Carroll Moran.

Judge Moran will then consider the report as part of his non-statutory inquiry into the affair.

The statement added that "at no point has the OCI Executive Committee had sight of the report."

Judge Moran is expected to receive the report by Tuesday 15 November,

Meanwhile, a separate draft report into governance at the organisation is to be reviewed by members in the coming days.

The report, which is being carried out by Deloitte, looks at how the OCI is governed under its current constitution.

The executive committee met in Olympic House in Howth this evening to discuss it.

In a statement following the meeting, acting OCI President Willie O'Brien said the report was circulated to the committee for the first time this evening and it will be reviewed over the coming days.

Once the committee has reviewed it for factual accuracies, Deloitte will finalise and publish the report.

The council was also expected to discuss the fallout from the resignation of two of its members in recent days.

Vice president John Delaney resigned on Tuesday and honorary treasurer Kevin Kilty resigned yesterday
