The case of rape has come to light in the Australian parliament. PM Scott Morrison apologized to the woman on the matter and ordered an investigation. The woman has accused her colleague of raping her inside the parliament complex. The Prime Minister says the country’s work culture is also being questioned in this regard and that it will be investigated. In March 2019, the office of Defense Minister Linda Reynolds claims the rape was committed. The woman says Morrison’s administration is also affiliated with the Lib Liberal Party.
The woman told the media that she had notified the police in April 2019, but had now decided to file a formal complaint despite her career concerns. Police have confirmed what the woman said about the incident in 2019, but decided not to file a complaint until then. The woman says she was also notified by senior officers in the Reynolds office about the rape incident. Even after this he was asked to attend a meeting in the same office where he was raped.
On Monday, Reynolds reported that he had told the woman about the rape. However, she denied any charges against the woman for not filing a formal complaint. Now PM Morrison apologized to the woman on Tuesday and promised to conduct a thorough investigation into the entire case. Speaking to the media in Canberra, Morrison said: ‘This should not happen. I apologize for this. ‘With this, I assure you that women will be given full security in the workplace,’ the PM said.
