The well-known "Manzano affair" has been filed definitively, according to todociclismo.com. The investigation to determine if the accused persons by the former Kelme cyclist have committed any crimes, has been closed. The judicial decision no longer admits any type of appeal to the case, which is why the filing is definite and uncontestable.

After the Professional Cyclists Association desisted, and the Mothers' Association against Drug Abuse exceeded the legal time limit for an appeal, the judge in charge of the case dated the closing of the affair on January 11, 2007. The decision of the judge puts a full stop to the story related by Jesus Manzano in the pages of the daily sports newspaper As, starting March 24, 2004.

After carrying out some tests and interrogations, the judge in charge of the judicial investigation chose to consider that there were no indications of crimes committed on Jesus Manzano by the group of doctors and team directors the cyclist was related to.
