Which they never follow! Witness the Lance Armstrong ruling - he declared his own guilt in January 2013, which should have kept his TdFs from 1999-2004 inviolate, but the decisions were that the statute of limitations did not apply in his case because he had been lying, so they took those away also.
Well, duh? Aren't all dopers who say they are not using lying about it? (To compete they have to sign a form saying they are not using PEDs - at least at the Olympics) I really think WADA and the IOC have no actual rules about a statute of limitations and will simply do whatever they wish and whatever is politically expedient for them to do.
