German investigators question d'Hont

Jef d'Hont, who has sparked the Telekom 1990s doping scandal, allegedly has been questioned by the German Bundeskriminalamt (BKA - federal police) on Monday in connection with the team's doping practices.

"He was questioned in Aachen. The meeting lasted over three hours," his attorney Dimitri Dedecker told the German tabloid BILD. Dedecker is the son of Belgian politician Jean-Marie Dedecker, who has been active in uncovering doping scandals.

Rolf Aldag, current T-Mobile Team Sport Director, was also questioned by the BKA on Monday.

In an interview earlier in the week, d'Hont told the German television program ARD-Tagesthemen, "I repeat; in the second half of the 1990s Jan Ullrich used EPO and growth hormones." In response, Ullrich's manager, Wolfgang Strohband, said "We want to undertake something against d'Hont."
