Police investigating alleged rape of Brittany Higgins hand prosecutors brief of evidence

Police investigating the alleged rape of Brittany Higgins have given prosecutors a brief of evidence.

Earlier this year, Ms Higgins came forward with allegations she was raped by a fellow Liberal Party staffer in 2019.

She has since taken the matter to Australian Federal Police.

ACT Director of Public Prosecutions Shane Drumgold has now received a partial brief of evidence and a request to provide advice on any prosecution.

It is not known when a final decision will be made.

ACT Police declined to comment on the investigation.

If you or someone you know is impacted by sexual assault, call 1800RESPECT on 1800 737 732 or visit 1800RESPECT.org.au. In an emergency, call 000.
