    Italy - "judge rules sellig steroids legal"

    Italy Rules Steroid , Doping Drug Sales Not Illegal
    Thu Apr 4, 3:01 PM ET

    FLORENCE, Italy (Reuters Health) - Selling steroids and other doping drugs to amateur athletes is no crime, Italy's highest appeals court declared on Wednesday.


    The ruling was the first legal decision based on an anti-doping law introduced in 2000, which makes sports doping an offence punishable by up to 3 years in prison and fines of up to about 52,000 euro, according to media reports.

    Asked to rule on a judge's decision not to authorise the arrest of a man accused of selling 10 vials of "Deca Durabolin " (nandrolone decaonate), the Court of Cassation, Italy's Supreme Court, said that traffic in doping drugs is a crime only in certain circumstances.

    As detailed in article 9 of the law, prosecutors must prove that the purpose was to falsify the outcome of a competitive sport event or the results of anti-doping tests.

    "It is a controversial ruling, and could pave the way to social doping in gyms," Dr. Giulio Rossi, a member of the Italian Federation Ice Sports anti-doping commission, told Reuters Health.

    "The anti-doping law should be revised, but most of all there should be more efforts telling people that sport activity doesn't mean a forced fitness, but a psycho-physical well-being," he said.

    According to lawyer Franco Coppi, the court ruling is correct from a judicial point of view. "In such cases, the nandrolone traffic could lead to other crime, but not sport fraud," he told the daily La Repubblica.

    In coming days, Italy's anti-doping body, a committee to be overseen by the health ministry, is expected to release a list of banned drugs.

    Meanwhile, a new International Olympic Committee (news - web sites) study yet to be published could shed new light on doping. According to a report in Britain's Financial Times on Thursday, widely used food supplements contain substances that could lead to positive results for banned anabolic steroids.
