– The revision of the disqualification for doping of Alex Schwazer was not granted because, as the learns by reading the 7 pages of the motivation of the Court of Civil Law of the Swiss Federal Court of Lausanne, the person responsible for the ‘tampering’ of the urine samples is not indicated.

According to the Swiss judges, “the decision on which the application is based does not concern the crime (the tampering with urine samples to make them become positive for doping control) which would have affected the award, but concerns a criminal procedure directed against the instant of another infringement. This is enough to exclude the possibility of successfully overriding the aforementioned reason for review “.
