Liberty Seguros team manager Manolo Saiz has been released on Wednesday, following questioning by the Spanish Civil Guard in matters related to doping. However, four others, including former Kelme doctor Eufemiano Fuentes, remain detained pending police questioning.

According to Spanish newspaper El Pais, Saiz was arrested in Madrid yesterday with a briefcase containing €60,000. In addition to Saiz, Eufemiano Fuentes and José Luis Merino Bartres, who was allegedly carrying a bag containing doping substances, including anabolics, were arrested. The newspaper reported that investigators suspect that Saiz was on his way to meeting Fuentes and Merino to close a deal.
