French soungier Bernard Sainz, known in the cycling world as 'Doctor Mabuse', is due before the French court for possession and sale of doping products, according to French newspaper Le Parisien. While the court has confirmed Sainz's appearance, it's not known exactly when Sainz is due to appear.

Sainz was suspected in the late 1990s to be in the possession of Diprostène, Redoxon, Syncorthyl, testosterone and cortisone. Furthermore, it's alleged he supplied and administered professional cyclists with doping products like EPO and testosterone.

The now 63 year-old become well known when he was stopped by a highway patrol, and found to be in possession of large quantities of doping products. At the time, Sainz said he was leaving Frank Vandenbroucke's home, which lead to the police searching the cyclist's residence, where they found EPO, morphine and clenbuterol.
