Explosive rape allegation against Cabinet Minister emerges in letter sent to Scott Morrison and the police – as it’s revealed an investigation was launched before the alleged victim took her own life
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has received a letter alleging that a current federal Cabinet Minister violently raped a woman in 1988.
The Australian Federal Police has been made aware of the letter by Labor Senator Penny Wong and Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young who also received it.
The letter includes details of the alleged rape which occurred before the man entered politics and urged the Prime Minister to take action on the allegation.
Last year the NSW Police set up a strike force to investigate the rape claim, but were delayed by Covid.
The complainant took her own life in June 2020, a day after she told NSW Police she did not want to pursue the investigation, the ABC reported.
