caught on a jag


On her own request, CP's accuser meets with the NSW Police Force.

Present at the meeting are the accuser, her lawyer, and Detective Senior Constable Samantha Meredith, a detective with Sex Crimes Squad.

[Accuser] advised she would prefer investigators travel to SA so she could have a support person available whilst making her statement. (Senior Constable says.)

The investigators later request to travel to SA.

NSW Police Deputy Commissioner David Hudson denies their request. The reason given is 'insufficient detail' to justify why the trip could not be deferred during COVID-19 restrictions.


This is the last day of CP's accuser's life.
