Scott Morrison has faced a barrage of concerns over whether a “don’t ask, do not tell” approach drove the Defence Minister Linda Reynolds’ choice to help keep silent over an authorities research as a staffer being allegedly raped in her own workplace.
The Prime Minister has announced today he was “not delighted” to discover that Senator Reynolds discovered almost 2 yrs ago that Australian Federal Police had been investigating a possible assault that is sexual never ever told him.
The AFP called her to inform her associated with research into an alleged assault that is sexual she had met with all the complainant, her staffer Brittany Higgins.
At a press meeting today, the Prime Minister ended up being expected, “Have you got some sort of ‘don’t ask, do not inform’ policy? Why didn’t you understand until recently that there is an alleged sexual attack?.”
In reaction, he stated he had been “not pleased” which he hadn’t been told previously.
“This is certainly a rather legitimate concern and I also can guarantee you that there surely is no such policy and I also’m unhappy in regards to the reality it was maybe not delivered to my attention, and I also can ensure you people understand that,” he stated.
