Sydney: Two cabinet ministers in Australia have been sacked following a sex scandal and given lower-level responsibilities.
According to the international news agency, two members of the cabinet, Attorney-General Christian Porter and female defense minister Linda Reynolds have been removed from their posts after a sex scandal came to light in Australia. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has taken this step as a result of intense public pressure and reaction.
Attorney-General Christian Porter was accused of sexually abusing a 16-year-old student in 1988. The woman committed suicide last year, but the attorney general denied the allegations.
Defense Secretary Linda Reynolds, on the other hand, was accused of making a mistake in the investigation into the alleged abuse of a young girl working in Parliament and calling the raped woman a “lying cow.”
