Well Marcello & Johnny you will have your day, Van D has hit the nail right on the head.

Young Bullett, rocket or Wesley or whatever you call him had 35 x the legal ammount of drugs in his body, now details comming out of Holland Allege that our law flouting friend EDWIN & his wife, will be procecuted.

He flouted that Wesley was beyound the law as a minor, but the wiskered one has now discovered he is not beyond the law, well one thing can be sure, with doing that to a child, the dounut boys inside will be ready to give him an overdose.

No if or Butts now that the truth has arrived Gan got 8 years in the USA for buggering up his childs life, so 5 to 10 looks in order, perhaps this might shut him up from trying to Villifie Kiwi’s.

Any one mentioned was big enough & ugly enough to make his own decision in life, young Wesley was only Guilty of trying to please his parents, they are sure to have to pay the price, by the time Edwin gets the door open, there will be no family aroung to greet him.

On the 9th june the judge will make his opinion about today’s case.
On the 10th june the (official) doping case is planned in court.

I guess you all know that Holland is a strange country in “how to interpretate rules/relulations and law’s” and the Lommers hope they convince the judge in procedure-mistakes that the integrity of Wesly has damaged. One of the main things they blame is the Ice Union having their press release about a suspected youngster and at the same time all the results are moved out of the international database (http://www.knsb.nl/content/sara93/sara.asp). So both things lead to the suspect.
Question will be….what’s more important: procedure mistakes or the 35plus….
