Julie Bishop Backs Calls for an Inquest

Share:

Former cabinet minister Julie Bishop says an inquest would be the next logical step in the rape allegations against Christian Porter.

While Labor and some of the deceased alleged victim’s friends have backed calls for an independent inquiry into the allegations, Ms Bishop said an inquest was appropriate.

Federal minister Anne Ruston is also backing an inquest, but said it was up to the coroner to make an independent decision.
