WADA Director General, David Howman: “WADA has received the full case file, and will independently review the information in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code rules.”
WADA acknowledges the Australian Anti-Doping Authority’s (ASADA) decision not to appeal to the AFL Anti-Doping Appeals Tribunal in respect of the decisions in relation to 34 current and former Essendon players.
WADA has received the full case file, including all evidence related to the decisions, and will independently review the information in accordance with World Anti-Doping Code rules.
WADA will make no further public comment on this matter until it has decided whether or not to exercise its independent right of appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). WADA has 21 days to exercise this right.
