The situation was highlighted during the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard defamation trial, as Heard brought it up during her testimony. Johnny Depp testified that his finger was nearly severed after Heard threw a bottle at him. The exchange took place in Australia. Heard testified that Depp was responsible for bringing the pets into the country, leaving them to face possible euthanasia.

Currently, Australia’s Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) is persuing Heard on allegations of perjury. DAWE claims that Heard lied under oath during the Johnny Depp defamation trial when she said that the discrepancy in her declarations paperwork was her fault because she was sleep-deprived and was experiencing jet lag.

Retired FBI agent and attorney Bobby Chacon had this to say:

“Part of their [Canberra, Australia office] mission is liaison and assistance,” he explained. “So if the Australians needed something from here in the U.S., they would certainly contact the FBI’s Australia office and the FBI would likely assist.”

Previously, Heard admitted to falsifying passport documents with respect to declaring her dogs, thus avoiding conviction at the time. But now, the DAWE is seeking her out based on allegations of perjury, which could land the Aquaman actress in even more hot water.

Recently, Heard’s legal team filed a motion in Fairfax County, Virginia, to have the Depp case declared a mistrial, alleging that Juror #15 was never actually called to be a part of the jury in the trial.

It remains to be seen what will come of the investigation in Australia. Meanwhile in the United States, Depp and Heard fans alike are waiting to see if anything comes from Heard’s allegations about the juror in the Johnny Depp defamation trial.

As both are developing stories, we will update our readers as soon as more information is available.
