Oscar Camenzind must pay, because he is not willing to name his EPO supplier, the high court in Switzerland has ruled, according to Neue Züricher Zeitung.

The Swiss rider retired in 2004 after testing positive for EPO. The Swiss sports ministry has filed charged against the unknown persons who supplied Camenzind with the product. Camenzind consistently refused to testify as to the name of his supplier, saying he did not wish to endanger himself and claimed that he could be arrested in another country if he told what he knew.

The investigating judge fined him 500 Swiss Franken for inappropriate use of the right not to testify. A Swiss Kantonsgericht upheld the fine in May, and Camenzind appealed it to the higher court, which refused to hear the case.
