Should an independent inquiry into whether Christian Porter is fit to hold the office of AG, since the AFP didn't send the 31 page rape claim dossier to the NSW Police,?

By Olivia . Created on 12 Mar, 2021
NSW police commissioner Mick Fuller has pledged to review the new material pertaining to the historical rape allegation against Attorney-General Christian Porter to assess whether it is enough to allow police to reopen the case. Eminent lawyer Justin Gleeson has urged the Prime Minister to enlist the Solicitor-General in assessing whether Christian Porter is a fit and proper person to remain Attorney-General. Mr Gleeson, who was solicitor-general between 2013 and 2016, said Scott Morrison should have read the 31-page dossier sent to him anonymously by the friends of a woman who claims Mr Porter raped her 33 years ago. The ex-boyfriend of a woman who accused Mr Porter of raping her when they were both teenagers in 1988 said on Friday he had “relevant discussions” with Mr Porter over several years. James Hooke, who is senior managing director with Macquarie Group, has offered to appear before an independent inquiry.“ I also have what I consider to be clear recollections of relevant discussions I had with Christian Porter from April 1992 in Perth and through the mid-1990s.” Mr Hooke said he made himself known to NSW police in 2020 after Kate’s death and understood why they were unable to interview him. “In relation to any criminal prosecution, Christian Porter was manifestly and appropriately entitled to the presumption of innocence – it is essential to the rule of law,” he said. “In relation to any investigation of the important non-criminal aspects of this matter, I support an inquiry, like either that conducted by three retired eminent judges after Justice Lionel Murphy was acquitted of charges or that conducted by Dr Vivienne Thom into allegations about Justice Heydon. “I am willing to testify under oath at any appropriately convened inquiry.” Mr Porter, who is on mental health leave, has firmly denied the historical rape allegation and does not recall having discussed it with anyone.

I believe the 'rape' was supposed to have occurred in 1988. While I feel extremely bad for any woman who is raped, why has it taken 32 years to be brought to public attention?

i think only an inquiry can set things right for this sort of allegation ? If Christian Porter has done nothing wrong...He himself should put his hands up for an inquiry to be carried out to save his face and prove his innocence...so what is Scomo waiting for?

It is unlikely that this issue will be totally resolved as the female is no longer able to give evidence, and she withdrew her complaint. It is important to remember, a person is innocent until proved otherwise. I agree, there is an agenda by the ABC and other media outlets to bring down the Government, and conveniently leave out certain facts. ...

It wasnt signed, only alleged to be hers from friends. Honestly, read more than ABC headlines and youll see its a witchhunt being driven by someone. Just look at the snow ball effect and where the dirt is being slung... Its all part of a concerted effort to remove LNP as ALP have no chance without it.
