The demise of disgraced sports scientist Stephen Dank, infamously linked to the Essendon supplement scandal, has continued with a bankruptcy declaration in a Melbourne court.
Legal documents filed in the Federal Circuit Court on Tuesday show Dank owes more than $98,500.
Almost $88,000 stems from Dank's investment in a failed timber venture, Great Southern Plantations.
Registrar Daniel Caporale on Tuesday authorised that $12,745.08 be paid from Dank's "estate" in favour of ABL Custodian Services, a subsidiary of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank.
Dank made headlines for his involvement in AFL club Essendon's supplement scandal, dating back to 2011, which led to the suspension of 34 players from the 2016 season for using banned substances.
Following a writ served on Dank at the Sydney Opera House during a Legalise Drugs in Sport gathering in September 2016, repeated attempts were made to serve legal documents on Dank at his Ascot Vale home in July, court documents revealed.
"F*** off, I'll call the police ... I'll call my barrister," Dank yelled through a locked gate on one occasion.
The disgraced biochemist was subsequently sent a bankruptcy notice via text message, and documents were mailed.
The Australian newspaper reports Dank owes an estimated $1 million to its publisher Nationwide News in unpaid court costs relating to failed defamation action.
Dank was banned for life from being involved in professional sport by the AFL anti-doping tribunal in 2015 after being found guilty of 10 breaches of the code's anti-doping code.
Dank was also tied to the NRL supplements scandal at Cronulla, which resulted in a 12-month ban for the club's coach Shane Flanagan as well as back-dated, year-long suspensions for 12 players.
In 2016 Dank unsuccessfully approached the AFL appeals board to overturn his ban which prevents him from working in Australia or overseas.
He was injured when shots were fired at his home in July 2016.
Dank could not be reached for comment.
