So much of this I don't like.Former Liberal staffer Brittany Higgins has made a formal complaint to the Australian Federal Police (AFP) alleging rape in Parliament House.
Ms Higgins alleges she was sexually assaulted by a colleague inside then-defence industry minister Linda Reynold's office two years ago.

there are unconfirmed reports the alleged offender left the country this week.
I've heard through sources he has already left the country. Any idea who it is? apparently a member of the evanjalist church'Police are yet to speak to the man, who is a dual national. Government sources say he will not be allowed to leave the country.'The intense publicity surrounding the alleged rape of Brittany Higgins in a Parliament House ministerial office prompts a surge of women reporting sexual assault to police in the nation's capital.www.abc.net.au
I hope those un-named Government Sources are correct in this alleged serial rapist dual national still being in Australia.
I imagine if there were no Government approvals required to exit the country at the moment, that the alleged offender might well have made it to the USA before he could be interviewed, arrested or charged.
And envisage that Ms Higgins would have not forewarned her accused rapist or anyone (including any Police) in any possibly way that she was, or might be about to go public on the March 2019 alleged rape event, had she not been assured that he would have great difficulty in exiting Australia before he could be interviewed, arrested or charged.
The accused would have likely had a window of opportunity to exit Australia for good before COVID-19 travel restrictions came in earlier in 2020, and obviously didn't.
I've found him, named on a lefty page. There is only one mention of him looks like everything has been removed from online about this person.The incident happened a week before the Federal election, imagine if it had of got out then.Like PR I am not a fan of allegations being made long after the incident
But I also wonder , given the nature of the work place , if the allegations were made at the time and nothing was done at that time - hence the desire for revelations
I have seen where 2 more women have made allegations against the same person
If you search twitter you can see his name
But I better ask my wife
Exemptions are not difficult to obtain, and with connections he would have no problems getting one.... there are unconfirmed reports the alleged offender left the country this week.
Except for the wipe down of his onlineNot sure if it is the name on Twitter. There's also a DoD press release that seems to explain that it couldn't have been him.
Yep very dodgy, looks like there was an application also made to remove content about this person.Except for the wipe down of his online
That alone draws suspicion. You have the right to not have a digital presence but it seems his has been professionally cleaned and only since the allegations arose
I think most women or all of them that I know, have been a victim of a sexual assault at some point in their lives and I do understand why the majority I would suggest, do not come forward for a long time if ever and for a multitude of reasons.Clearly yous guys have never been a victim of sexual assault or rape, let alone in the workplace. 10+ years I still haven't reported it and have only told one single person. It's not uncommon for those of sexual assault and/or rape to not come forward for years, let alone go public - hell I'd say more rapes & assaults go unreported because of comments like the above.
I'm with you on that one. There are so many reasons that victim/survivors don't report either at the time, or later. Even much later, there are still reasons why some people choose not to report. And bearing in mind that they didn't have the choice to be a victim/survivor, no-one should try to take away their choice not to relive the experience. Instead of saying 'why didn't she report it?', try saying 'I want to change things so that she felt safe to report it at the time'.Clearly yous guys have never been a victim of sexual assault or rape, let alone in the workplace. 10+ years I still haven't reported it and have only told one single person. It's not uncommon for those of sexual assault and/or rape to not come forward for years, let alone go public - hell I'd say more rapes & assaults go unreported because of comments like the above.
