Canberra, March 3 : Australia’s Attorney General (AG) Christian Porter has identified himself as the government minister facing a historical rape allegation and fronted the media on Wednesday to deny the allegation.
The allegation came to light at the end of February in an anonymous letter sent to Prime Minister Scott Morrison and members of the Greens and Labor parties, reports Xinhua news agency.
The letter included detailed allegations that Porter raped a 16-year-old girl in Sydney in 1988, about 20 years before he entered politics in Western Australia and 25 years before he entered federal Parliament, at which time he was 17.
Porter said that it “simply did not happen”.
“Nothing in the allegations that have been printed ever happened,” he said on Wednesday.
“Because what is being alleged did not happen, I must say so publicly.”
