After several months of investigation is the indictment against the former austrian cyclist Georg Preidler now ready.
The austrian telegrambureau APA report so that the public prosecutor's office in Innsbruck, appeals to him for 'serious fraud' after he has admitted to have been procured by the blood of the skandaliserede doping-doctor Mark Schmidt.
Schmidt is central in the so-called 'Operation Aderlass', which rolled during the WORLD cup in cross-country skiing in February, where the police among other things, took the austrian Max Hauke in flagrante delicto with a needle in his arm, and then branched out into the sport.
Preidler, however, refuses that he ever got genindsprøjtet his blood, and thus bloddopet themselves.
Of the indictment, it appears, among other things, that the Preidler regularly have bloddopet and also taken growth hormone starting from the Giro d'italia in the spring of 2017 and until his confession.'
That it has come so far Preidler because he ran the WORLD championships in Innsbruck in 2018, in which he had contractually committed to follow the anti-doping rules. Doping is illegal in Austria, and since Preidler thus broke the law, he is therefore accused of fraud, which is estimated to an amount of almost two million dollars.
the Penalty for it kind of goes from a half to five years in prison.
another former austrian cyclist Stefan Denifl, has also admitted to have been drained of blood by Mark Schmidt, at his clinic in the German Erfurt has been seized 40 blood bags.
Denifl has, however, chosen to accept its verdict on the four-year quarantine, while Preidler chose to appeal against the decision.
