A deal for Ullrich?

Jan Ullrich has indicated that he has reached an agreement with German investigators, and has agreed to let Swiss authorities turn over to German investigators documents taken when his house was searched in September 2006. According to the Swiss newspaper, St. Galler Tagblatt, various documents and other information has remained in the office of the Berziksamt Kreuzlingen, while Ullrich's attorney's contested their turnover to the Germans. Hans-Ruedi Graf, head public prosecutor for the Canton of Thurgau, told the newspaper that the material, including electronic data, would be turned over next week.

Graf said that earlier this year, Ullrich had filed a suit in court in Bellinzona, Switzerland, to prevent the material being turned over to German investigators, but that he case was never heard. "After two or three weeks I was suddenly told by the responsible prosecutor in Germany that there would likely be an out-of-court settlement." Shortly thereafter, the newspaper reported, Ullrich's Swiss attorney confirmed to Graf that Ullrich had reached an agreement with the Bonn, Germany, prosecutors and that the material could be released.
