The REAL reason police never interviewed Christian Porter after a woman accused him of raping her in 1988 when they were teenagers
Christian Porter was never interviewed by police over accusations he raped a teenager in 1988 because the alleged victim never gave a formal statement.
The dumped attorney-general was accused of raping a 16-year-old member of his debating team during a trip to Sydney – which he vehemently denies.
While the accuser made her initial complaint in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, she later withdrew it when the pandemic delayed the meeting with detectives and suicided at home 24 hours later.
On Thursday, police confirmed her withdrawing the complaint before making a formal statement meant Mr Porter was never questioned.
More to come.
