Jan Ullrich's attorneys are trying to prevent Swiss investigators from turning over documents from the Bank Credit Suisse to German investigators, the German news magazine FOCUS has reported. The bank account statements were taken during a search of Ullrich's house last September and from the bank.

The documents are currently being held by the district attorney in the Swiss canton of Thurgau. The German district attorney's office in Bonn hopes to use the documents in its fraud investigation of Ullrich, by showing how much the German cyclist paid to Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes.

In addition, the magazine said that Belgian prosecutors are investigating Ullrich's mentor Rudy Pevenage for tax problems.
