Doctor 'Mabuse' gets nine months in jail for supplying dope

France condemns 'doctor Mabuse' to nine months in jail for doping

A court in Caen northwestern France jimposed a nin month prison sentence on  Bernard Sainz , known as "Dr. Mabuse", which had already been convicted of similar offenses in the past.

Judges imposed a fine of 20,000 euros, on Sainz, aged 74, in which 10 other defendants were convicted.

 Semi-professional cyclist Fabien Taillefer was tried on July 4th in a case that originated in a police investigation launched in 2010.

During the hearing, the Prosecutor's Office emphasized, based on the confession of some of the athletes, that the role of Sainz was the drafting of "doping protocols" for which he received significant amounts of money, in particular an income of 70,000 euros in the account of his ex-wife.

According to Taillefer, when he was arrested in 2011 along with other cyclists involved, in 2009 when he was going through a low time he had decided to resort to doping and took corticosteroids and then EPO.

Sainz, who presented himself as a homeopath, had already been sentenced in 2014 to a jail sentence for inciting doping and illegal medical practice. He had also been sentenced earlier for facts concerning his involvement with doping cases in the professional squad in the late 1990's and early 2000's.
