Landuyt/Museeuw Affair: Go to Jail

This is a landmark case, in that it sets the precedent in the Belgian courts that trafficking with doping is equivalent to trafficking with other drugs. This is excellent news for the fight against doping (among other things, it will benefit anti-doping cooperation across the Franco-Belgian border).

Actually they were given suspended sentences, so no jail time.
Yuck... you're right. It does says "suspended jail time" in the Danish version too.
Still, it's an important case, in terms of setting the precedent in the Belgian courts.
