A Labor MP was accused of rape in an email, as Liberal Senator Sarah Henderson revealed in a series of sexual assault allegations against senior politicians

The Victorian Senator said in a statement released late Sunday that she received an email from a woman and forwarded it to the Australian Federal Police

“Late that afternoon, I forwarded an email to the Australian Federal Police that I received this afternoon from a woman who claimed she had been raped by a man who is now a federal labor MP,” said Senator Henderson in a statement posted on Twitter

The Liberal Senator said she referred the matter to AFP immediately after Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw on Jan. February had laid down the procedures

“When I immediately referred this matter to AFP, I received Commissioner Kershaw’s letter in his letter of Jan. “I am making this statement in the interests of full transparency,” she said

The latest email comes after a woman accused a Morrison government minister of raping her in 1988 before entering Parliament. A letter detailing the rape allegations was sent to the prime minister which was then sent to AFP was forwarded

The woman left a lot of emails, letters, and other correspondence before committing suicide in Adelaide last year. Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called for an investigation into the woman’s death on Sunday

The bombing followed Brittany Higgins’ allegation that she was sexually assaulted in the House of Parliament in March 2019.The former Liberal worker alleges she was raped by a colleague in her boss’s office, Secretary of Defense Linda Reynolds, after a night of drinking later felt pressured not to file a formal complaint

Ever since Ms. Higgins told her story on the newscomAu, a wave of women in Canberra have also claimed they were sexually assaulted

Three women have alleged that they were attacked by the same man as Ms. Higgins, while others made allegations about other incidents in the House of Parliament or in the civil service

A Labor spokesman told ABC the latest statement: “The Australian Labor Party has seen media reports that Senator Henderson has received allegations of sexual assault and has forwarded relevant correspondence to the authorities as appropriate”
