Below is a letter from ACT Director of Public Prosecution Shane Drumgold sent to ACT Chief Police Officer Neil Gaughan outlining evidence of corrupt police trying to stop rape charges against Bruce Lehrmann and police colluding with Lehrmann’s lawyers during the rape trial. ACT Policing is the community policing arm of the Australian Federal Police (AFP).
The letter sets out the police conspiracy to help Lehrmann which has led to a Board of Inquiry into the Criminal Justice System in the Australian Capital Territory that has been set up to investigate police attempts to cover-up Brittany Higgins’ alleged rape.
The below letter is a must-read as it sets the background for the Inquiry which will be explosive given there have been numerous leaks of police evidence and documents, regarding the rape trial and investigation, to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.
The police leaks to News Corp must have been approved by AFP Commissioner Reece Kershaw given he has taken no action to investigate or stop the leaks.
And right on cue, Murdoch’s propagandists at News Corp have ramped up their attacks on Brittany Higgins in the last few weeks. One of the reasons Murdoch has ramped up his attacks on Brittany Higgins is because of his involvement in the attempted cover-up by publishing the police leaks.
The AFP leaking to News Corp is not new and an ABC journalist complained in July 2022 about the AFP giving News Corp privileged leaks about other stories and I published an article titled “Is Rupert Murdoch bribing police again for stories given an ABC journalist says the AFP are giving scoops to News Corp?”
The below letter is worth looking at again in the current environment, and with the Inquiry starting, as most people haven’t seen it in full and months later after its public release no one from the AFP has refuted the allegations in the letter.
Update 6/3/23: Below is a video where I give detailed commentary and analysis of the above letter:
Once the ACT inquiry is finished there will need to be a federal Inquiry given the involvement of the numerous federal politicians in the attempted cover-up.
I will continue to follow this story as it will be one of the biggest corruption stories in 2023.
