I have always believed that no player at the EFC has taken performance enhancing drugs or broken, ASADA, Wada or AFL laws.
I have been advised by my lawyers for a long time that the joint ASADA and AFL investigation was unlawful and outside the powers given to ASADA by the government.
The legal system in Australia is a fundamental foundation that our society is built on. If the legality of the joint investigation is in question it is important to me that the players and staff of the EFC are treated fairly in accordance with the laws that govern Australia.
It is for this reason that I am issuing proceedings against ASADA and seeking the joint ASADA , AFL investigation be declared unlawful.
