Shaikh Mohammed orders law to criminalise doping in equine sport (Wam) / 24 May 2013 His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Thursday ordered the drafting of a decree making the import, sale, purchase and use of anabolic steroids in all horse related sports in the UAE a criminal offence. The decree is to have immediate effect. “I have always believed in the integrity of horse racing and all other horse sports” said Shaikh Mohammed. “I have, in light of the unfortunate recent event, directed that a decree be issued making, with immediate effect, the import, sale, purchase or use of anabolic steroids in horse sports a criminal offence under the UAE penal laws.” “Regrettably, one of my stables in Europe has recently fallen below the standards that I expect and will tolerate. As soon as the internal investigations are complete and the requisite preemptory rules are put in place, Godolphin will go from strength to strength and lead, once again, adherence to the highest standards in that gracious sport”, he said.
