Murray Questions Handling Of Doping Enquiry

Andy Murray has continued his broadside against drug cheats, questioning the handling of a Spanish doping enquiry and asking if a decision to destroy evidence is the “biggest cover-up in
sports history”.
The Scot, currently third in the world tennis rankings, used his Twitter account to criticise this week’s decision in the Operation Puerto case to destroy more than 200 bags of blood and plasma which were found when police raided the offices of Doctor Eufemiano Fuentes in 2006. Fuentes was convicted earlier this week for his part in the supply of blood transfusions to cyclists, but he has also worked with athletes, boxers, footballers and tennis players.
The doctor, who received a one-year suspended sentence for endangering public health, has not said anything to implicate anyone in a sport other than cycling. Murray believes that the destruction of the blood and plasma could end the hope of revealing the extent of Fuentes’ involvement in other sports.
“Operacion puerto case is beyond a joke,” Murray tweeted. “Biggest cover up in sports history? Why would court order blood bags to be destroyed? coverup.”
Judge Julia Patricia Santamaria ordered that the 211 bags of frozen blood and plasma be destroyed, but Spain’s anti-doping authority, the AEA, plans to contest the ruling. With the backing of the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada), they want to analyse the samples to determine if they reveal evidence of doping in the sports other than cycling in which Fuentes was involved.
