The investigation is said to have begun last week and will reveal whether there are objectionable circumstances surrounding Olympic champion Tony Estanguette's salary terms.

According to AFP, Estangit earns around three million Norwegian kroner before taxes. In addition, you can get bonuses of up to 20 percent. Estanguet uses its own company to invoice wages to the organizing committee, thus not raising regular wages.

The step of introducing funds into the company's account should be based on the fact that it can thus circumvent the rules according to which people associated with organizations with the same status as the Olympic Committee cannot earn more than a certain amount per year.

Estanget is a former Olympic rowing champion.

The Olympic Games begin in Paris on July 26.

The Olympic organization has also previously been suspected of violating the rules regarding the awarding of several contracts related to the Olympics this summer.

The organizers also confirmed this to Agence France-Presse earlier.
