NSW Police close investigation into historical rape allegation.

New South Wales Police say their investigation into a historical rape allegation against a Federal Cabinet minister is now closed.

An anonymous letter, sent to several members of Parliament, alleged a woman was raped when she was a teenager in 1988 by a man who is now a Minister in the federal government.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the Minister “absolutely rejects” the allegation.

The Cabinet Minister, who is the focus of a historical rape allegation, is likely to break his silence tomorrow.
