The sexual harassment scandal in Australia's political arena is even emerging as a "prime minister's resignation."

 

Controversy has not subsided since the revelation of sexual assault by a former Australian government official on the National Assembly building last month, with other women also publicizing the damage. Prime Minister Scott Morrison apologized, but the claim that the ruling party tried to cover up the incident is expected to continue its accountability.

 

"The revelation of former civil servants has sparked public debate over the damage of other women," ABC Bangson reported on the 2nd (local time). "The rape charges are shaking up Australian politics."

 

Brittany Higgins (26) earlier claimed in an interview with local media that she was damaged by a colleague in March 2019 when she was working as a media adviser to Defense Minister Linda Reynolds. After drinking with his colleagues, a man approached him and sexually assaulted him while sleeping on the sofa in the minister's

 

The problem is dealing with the minister and others. Higgins informed Reynolds of the sexual assault shortly after the incident, who reportedly helped the police ask for help. Higgins said he was "afraid" that he would lose his job if he sued the police. The perpetrator was fired a few days later, but the reason was that he violated the office security-related regulations, not assault charges.

 

After Higgins' revelation, Prime Minister Morrison apologized, saying, "Young women should not be put in such a vulnerable situation," but public anger has not subsided. Higgins said he had put pressure on the ruling Liberal Party to cover up the controversy.

According to ABC, four more women have claimed sexual assault damage against the same perpetrator since then. One woman said she was sexually assaulted while working as an election volunteer in 2016, while another woman claimed that the man patted her thigh during a group dinner with a colleague in 2017.

 

Last week, an Australian political community seems to be shaken by a sexual assault scandal, with the revelation that a minister in the current cabinet also raped a 16-year-old woman in 1988. Two opposition lawmakers told AFP that the victim went to the police in New South Wales early last year, but eventually killed himself. Friends of the victim sent letters to lawmakers, including the prime minister, claiming an independent investigation is needed.

 

"The allegations over the past two weeks have raised more questions about Australia's political culture, including long-standing disputes over gender discrimination and misogyny," ABC said. "The cabinet members who are suspected of serious crimes need to step down until a government investigation takes place.

 

The situation in Australia's political circles is expected to be followed by a close investigation by law enforcement agencies are expected to continue.
