Senator Nick Xenophon - The Heiner Affair
06 June 2011 , 7:32 PM by Peter Gooch
A Queensland woman who alleges she was pack raped at the age of 14 while she was a ward of the state is at the centre of what might be a new federal inquiry into the state’s longest running scandal. It’s been running for over two decades now involving shredded documents and "hush money" used to keep the woman quiet. Now it’s set to be re-opened as Senator Nick Xenophon - with Coalition support - moves to open a new probe into what has become known as the Heiner Affair.
