A police officer (familiar with the anti-doping-raid in Seefeld in Tirol) has recorded and shared a video which shows cross-country skier Max Hauke with a needle in his arm during the Nordic skiing world championships.
Hauke and some other athletes have been arrested because of performing blood transfusion.
After the publication of the video by a Norwegian news portal, Austria's Federal Police Office said the person who shared the video should be immediately removed from office as the Official Secret Act has been violated.
On February 27, Austria's police office and officers of the German Public Prosecution Department conducted a search and consequently held up nine persons. These include five athletes.
The Estonian skier Karel Tammjarv admitted that he has been engaging himself in blood transfusions since 2016.
