Former political staffer Brittany Higgins denies telling colleagues about a doctor’s appointment in order to “bolster” her rape allegations.
Higgins denies ‘bolstering’ rape claims
Brittany Higgins has vehemently denied pretending to have booked doctor’s appointments in the week after her alleged rape to “bolster” her story.
The former Liberal Party staffer is being cross-examined as the first witness in the criminal trial of Bruce Lehrmann, who has been accused of raping her in Parliament House.
He has pleaded not guilty to sexual intercourse without consent.
Ms Higgins earlier told the court she made the appointments with every intention of going but due to her depressive state she was not physically able to attend.
