Lithuanian cyclist Raimondas Rumsas and his wife Edita have been given four month suspended sentences by a French court for possession and import of doping substances. Edita was also given a €3000 fine. The court in Bonneville handed down its verdict today, three and a half years after Edita was stopped at the French border with a quantity of illegal drugs immediately following the 2002 Tour de France, where Raimondas finished third.

In addition, Polish doctor Kristof Ficek was given a 12 month suspended sentence, as the court determined that he had prescribed the drugs.
