Seven federal politicians could be rapists according to complaints made to the Federal Police. Is Canberra the rape capital of Australia?

Seven federal politicians, which could include the Prime Minister, had complaints of sexual assault made against them in the period from the 24th of February 2021 until the 30th of June 2022 which is the year-and-a-half period after Brittany Higgins’ allegations first became public knowledge.

Yet the Australian Federal Police failed to charge any of them which is consistent with how the federal police operate a protection racket for federal politicians.

It’s well documented sexual assaults are greatly underreported “(92%) of women who experienced sexual assault did not report the incident to the police“. So, if there were seven reported complaints against federal politicians the real number of alleged sexual assaults would be a lot higher.

The fact that seven federal politicians were accused of sexual assault was made public on Tuesday (7/11/23) by The Guardian who reported it in an article titled “AFP handled seven sexual assault claims against federal parliamentarians after Brittany Higgins’ allegations, FoI shows” which starts off:

Seven sexual assault allegations against federal parliamentarians were investigated by federal police or referred to state and territory law enforcement in the year-and-a-half period after Brittany Higgins’ allegations first became public knowledge, Guardian Australia can reveal.

The federal police’s oversight board for politically sensitive investigations has revealed it received seven briefs relating to previously unknown sexual assault allegations against federal politicians between 24 February 2021 and 30 June 2022.

The fresh information, revealed in a decision document in response to a freedom of information request by Guardian Australia, showed two of the allegations were investigated by federal police, while the remaining five were referred to state and territory police during the period.

Details of the allegations, including dates, location and those involved, were redacted.

The AFP said the two investigations undertaken during the 16-month period had already been finalised. (Click here to read more)

The AFP say it’s 2 investigations have been finalised which means little. And what happened to the other 5 alleged sexual assaults referred to state and territory law enforcement?

Having seven federal politicians accused of sexual assault, but no details are known, is a national scandal and how is it that The Guardian is the only old media that has reported the matter. I published a video as per below on the 8th of November on the matter:

When looking at how the AFP sweep sexual assault allegations against politicians and their staffers under the carpet it must be remembered the AFP have a huge sexual assault problem within the AFP where female police officers are not even safe.

I published an article on the 25th of August 2016 titled “AFP staff who were raped by Australian Federal Police asked to make a formal complaint” which starts off:

Commissioner Andrew Colvin has asked for Australian Federal Police (AFP) who were raped or sexually assaulted by other Federal Police to come forward and make a formal complaint after a report says that 2% of AFP employees have been raped and/or sexually assaulted.

Over the past six months former Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick, has interviewed/consulted with over 1000 AFP employees and the results are horrific. On Monday the Broderick Report was released by the AFP. (Click here to read the report)

It found in the last five years 66% of women and 62% of men have been bullied and 20% have been sexually harassed which is almost double the national average. Worst of all is that 2% have been raped by another AFP employee, sexually assaulted or had another AFP employee attempt raping/sexually assaulting them.

The Australian Federal Police has urged dozens of members who may have been the victims of rapes or attempted rapes by colleagues to come forward after a shocking report found “pervasive” sexual harassment and bullying in the organisation.” (Click here to read more)

Given there are over 6000 AFP employees that means an estimate would be over 120 possible rapists/criminals guilty of sexual assault working in the AFP. The SMH says the Broderick report estimates “30 rapes” but that number seems to be based on the 1000 interviewed not the total number of employees as Commissioner Colvin also estimates that it is over 100 in the video below.

Also, it is well-known that many people do not report sexual assaults so the true number is likely to be much higher. (Click here to read the article)

If in 2016 Commissioner Andrew Colvin estimated there were over 100 female AFP officers who had been raped / sexually assaulted by other AFP officers how many have been charged or gone to jail? None I suspect.

And how many hundreds of other AFP officers know about the cover-ups and say nothing? Knowing that, it’s not hard to understand why there is the toxic culture in the AFP where they themselves have no respect for the law.

It’s only a few days ago (9/11/23) that I published the article titled “Perjury is now standard practice at the AFP after 8 police were preparing to lie in court to stitch up Latrell Mitchell and Jack Wighton” which starts off:

Rugby League players Latrell Mitchell and Jack Wighton were saved from criminal convictions because the nightclub they were at in Canberra had CCTV otherwise the perjured evidence of 9 police officers would have likely been enough for conviction.

But the old media have been missing a key point in their reporting and which is after one police officer committed perjury, Sergeant David Power, up to another 8 officers were planning on committing perjury to support Sergeant Power but the scam was exposed before they could.

And then on Friday it was revealed ACT Greens politician Johnathan Davis is alleged to have had sex with an underage boy and a teenager. It is also alleged the AFP failed to investigate a complaint against Jonathan Davis in 2019 which I reported in the below video on Friday (10/11/23):

The AFP have cover-up scandals all over the place and their specialty seems to be covering up the rape of women and children when politicians or their staffers are involved. And of course, as per above, the AFP cover-up AFP officers raping female AFP officers.

Who knows about what I have written above? All the politicians in Canberra know but they still do nothing, or they do the very minimal to make it look like they are doing something.

It’s almost a full-time job just reporting AFP corruption and it’s only when the corruption is collated in one place does the full picture start to show what is really happening. The AFP has lost its moral compass and should be closed down and rebuilt.

We all know the saying “The standard you walk past is the standard you accept” which means there are a lot of politicians in Canberra walking past a very low standard and accepting it.

  1. Bravo, Shane. Calling out the AFP and the sexual assaults and rapes by Federal Politicians – let alone what must be going in the corridors and prayer rooms of State parliaments!

  2. Wondering if it was Shane Rattenbury’s idea to appoint Walter Sofronoff?
    A.C.T. Labor might be starting to work out that The Greens aren’t their friends?
    Baby steps.

  3. OH NO! Goodness gracious me! Not the AFP again?

    Hardly surprising really. When you watched and listened to the AFPs representatives that fronted the Sofronoff Inquiry, you were not exactly filled with confidence or admiration as to the lack of professionalism and questionable conduct, openly displayed by these individuals. I certainly wasn’t.

    Back at headquarters, I’m sure the debrief after appearing at the Inquiry, would have been a very interesting session. And the attendance sheet of the debrief would also have been an interesting read.

    I refer directly to my comment on the previous KCA article. IMHO: “The AFP is a laughable group of inept and incompetent individuals. They are indeed outrageously entertaining and preposterously hare-brained, just like the Keystone Kops.”

    Questionable investigations, with no option allowed for scrutiny or answers for those that they serve, the Australian people, and it would also seem that the outcomes are protected from view, indeed hidden.

    A real question must be asked as to the expertise, qualities and skills of the members of the AFP. Unfortunately, the good ones are being tarred by the brush of others.

    Sad really! Does anyone know the annual budget for the AFP?
