As Amber Heard prepares to appeal the verdict in her defamation case against ex-husband Johnny Depp, the actress is also facing a perjury investigation in Australia.
A case related to the 2015 illegal importation of Heard’s Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, was deemed closed after the Aquaman actress pleaded guilty in 2016 to a lesser charge of falsifying immigration documents during a trip to Queensland with then-husband Johnny Depp for the taping of the fifth film in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
The article goes on to state the following:
Heard’s lawyer, Jeremy Kirk, argued there was “no attempt to deceive” but that the actress had mistakenly thought Depp’s staff had completed the necessary paperwork for the dogs when she marked the wrong box on her incoming passenger card, according to the Daily Mail.
Heard and Depp issued a strange apology on video for not declaring the dogs stating, “protecting Australia is important.”
According to Entertainment Tonight, the Australian Department of Agriculture, Water, and the Environment is saying the case is “ongoing” and they are “investigating allegations of perjury by Ms. Heard during court proceedings for the 2015 illegal importation of [her] two dogs into Australia.”
The investigation actually began due to the testimony given during Depp’s 2020 libel case against the Sun newspaper in the U.K. Reportedly one of Depp’s former employees testified that Heard told him to lie about the dogs being flown into Queensland on a private jet without being declared.
The employee recounted, “When I expressed that I was extremely uncomfortable with this, Ms. Heard said to me, ‘Well I want your help on this … I wouldn’t want you to have a problem with your job. It became very apparent that Ms. Heard was threatening my job stability unless I cooperated with providing a declaration that supported her false account for the Australian proceedings.”
