Marzoli not responding to CONI

Ruggero Marzoli did not respond yesterday to the questions of Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) anti-doping prosecutor Ettore Torri during the one hour and 15 minute hearing. CONI summoned Marzoli for questioning stemming from the 2004 Oil for Drugs investigation.

"The cyclist did not want to interfere with the legal work of the Pescara prosecutor," noted Marzoli's lawyer, Nicolò Velati. However, Torri noted that the 31 year-old cyclist from Abruzzo had a "collaborative attitude," according to

"It was an interlocutory meeting. Our line of defence is based on the eavesdropping of NAS (Italy's Anti-Narcotics Group)," concluded Velati.

Another CONI hearing is expected for Marzoli. For more details on the Oil for Drugs, read NAS blitz nets nada and NAS raid Giro again from 2004.
