Spaniard Rafael Nadal did not restrain himself from criticizing the decision taken by a Spanish judge not to reveal the names of the athletes allegedly involved in the Operation Puerto doping case.
According to Spanish press, judge Julia Patricia Santamaria refused to disclose the names of athletes and also did not allow the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to get access to the sachets of blood that were seized in the Spanish police operation against Dr Eufemiano Fuentes. Moreover, he even ordered that these samples should be destroyed. If it would happen as ordered then people around the world will never know about all those athletes, who used Fuentes's services to get unfair advantage in their sports.
While interacting with media, Rafael Nadal quoted, "I find it unfair that the names of the cheats are not given, whether they're Spanish or not. The image that this verdict gives our country is not the best.”
He further added that "It seems to me to be a mistake not to reveal the names of the cheats so that at least they can feel the contempt of fellow sportsmen and feel ashamed."
"The ruling wasn't positive for anyone," said Nadal. "The only ones that benefited were those who cheated. The ones that are hurt are Spanish athletes and sports in general. The image this transmits to the world isn't the one we were hoping for. I think it is a mistake that the names are not known, but that is what happened. We will keep working so that sports stay clean and this doesn't happen again in the future."
