Officials to question 150 on sports doping
11:45 AEST Thu Feb 14 2013

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority expects to interview about 150 people as it investigates the doping scandal engulfing the NRL and AFL.

The agency says it won't be naming any clubs or individuals while the investigation is under way and has welcomed the ongoing commitment by the sports to co-operate fully.

"In response to the very serious matters raised by the Australian Crime Commission's (ACC) report, Organised Crime and Drugs in Sport, the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) confirms that the scope and magnitude of its investigation is unprecedented," ASADA said in a statement on Thursday.

"ASADA anticipates interviewing about 150 players, support staff and administrators from two major sporting codes based on current information. The number of interviews may grow if the investigation uncovers new lines of inquiry.

"The investigation is both complex and wide-ranging and will take many months to complete.

"Until such time as ASADA concludes its investigation it is not in a position to elaborate on the extent of the issue.

"ASADA is unable to talk publicly about its investigation and that includes speculating about, or naming clubs or individuals until such time as its legislation permits. This ensures the integrity of the investigation and the privacy of any individual under investigation is protected."
