Belgian national coach Jose De Cauwer has been subjected to more serious drug supplying allegations by former amateur racer Ronny Vansweevelt, who is facing court in Antwerp on trafficking charges. Up until now, De Cauwer's only admission has been that in the mid-1990's he gave Vansweevelt a phone number of a Dutch soigneur who could supply him with amphetamines, as Vansweevelt was an addict. But Vansweevelt is now claiming that De Cauwer sold him 'pot belge' - a mixture of heroin, cocaine, amphetamines and caffeine - between 1983 and 1986, some 10 years previously.
"He asked for double what another dealer wanted," said Vansweevelt, who is under psychiatric care at the moment. De Cauwer's lawyer claimed that, "The explanations are not in the dossier" while Vansweevelt's lawyer countered with, "My client has really said this."
