Jessica Kuerten's lawyer lodges complaint with the FEI

The FEI informed Jessica Kuerten over a positive medication sample taken from the mare Castle Forbes Maike at the
CSIO5* La Baule, France. The rider decided to waive the offered fine of 500 Swiss Francs for the suspicion of a forbidden substance and requested the FEI to open the B sample.

The date for the testing of the B sample was today September 25th, 2007 at LCH in Paris, France. The A sample had already been analyzed there. Today it came to a unique procedure at LCH. The witnessing analyst representing Jessica Kuerten, Dr. Laurent Bigler from the University of Zurich, was refused the right to survey the analysis of the B sample at the lab.

The lawyer for show jumping rider Jessica Kuerten, Dr. Ulf Walz from Basel, Switzerland, immediately protested by the FEI in Lausanne, Switzerland.
