Things may be moving again in the German fraud investigation of Jan Ullrich. German ARD television reports that the prosecutor's office in Bonn is awaiting delivery of documents concerning the former cycling star's bank accounts, which could possible show payments for doping activity.
Hans-Ruedi Graf, public prosecutor for the Kanton of Thurgau, told the ARD Sport Show that he expects any day to get the OK from the Swiss 'Bundesstrafgericht.'
"Jan Ullrich's bank documents could then go to Germany," said Graf. Ullrich's attorneys have previously tried to block the transfer of documents.
The Swiss Olympic investigation of Ullrich is also continuing. "Circumstantial evidence which convinces the Swiss national Olympic committee, would be enough for a lifetime ban for Jan Ullrich," Bernhard Welten, of Swiss Olympic's anti-doping committee said.
