Eufemiano Fuentes Sends Out List Of Subjects He Will Discuss Publicly For A Price
Published May 13, 2013
NEW LAW IN SPAIN: The AAP reported the Spanish parliament on Thursday passed "a beefed-up anti-doping law that will toughen penalties in order to polish Spain's image as it bids to host the 2020 Olympic Games." According to a draft of the law, it raises fines for doping to up to A$521,000 ($521,469) "but stops short of making doping punishable by jail" (AAP, 5/10).
UCI TO APPEAL: The Int'l Cycling Union (UCI) will appeal the April 29 court decision not to release to the UCI and other anti-doping organizations the more than 200 bags of blood and other evidence gathered in police raids in '06, which were presented in Fuentes's trial (UCI).
SAIZ SPEAKS OUT: The EFE reported former Liberty Seguros Team Manager Manolo Saiz described the impact he has felt from the case since he was cleared of all charges in the April 29 ruling. Saiz: "In this case you're not the same Manolo that were you were before. You are a sadder, more down, more thoughtful and more insecure Manolo" (EFE, 5/12).
