WADA statement on police raids in Austria and Germany


Press Release

28th February 2019

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) can confirm that it has been in close communication with law enforcement authorities in relation to the raids and arrests that police carried out today in Austria and Germany.

The raids were part of a wider police operation targeting criminals from a number of European countries, and WADA’s Intelligence and Investigations Department has been providing information and other assistance to the authorities in the course of their operation.

This latest cooperation with Austrian law enforcement follows a WADA investigation into activities of the International Biathlon Union, which last year resulted in the initiation of a criminal investigation by police in Austria and Norway.

Given the operation is ongoing, WADA can make no further comment at this time.
