Amber Heard still being investigated over perjury allegation in Australia dog incident, legal expert weighs in
Amber Heard is currently entrenched in a defamation lawsuit brought against her by her ex-husband Johnny Depp, but the actress is also still trudging muddy waters in Australia. The country's local authorities recently confirmed they're still investigating whether she allegedly committed perjury for illegally bringing her dogs into the country without declaring them for quarantine, and a legal expert is weighing in on what could've changed for Heard in the incident. The serious offense alleges the "Aquaman" star, 36, lied under oath "during court proceedings for the 2015 illegal importation of (her) two dogs into Australia," a spokesperson for Australia’s Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) told Fox News Digital on Thursday. The department stipulates that foreign pets must be quarantined for 10 days when first brought into the country, and they reckon Heard knew of the stringent policy but allegedly disregarded it anyway by smuggling them into the land down under. ""The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (department) is investigating allegations of perjury by Ms Heard during court proceedings for the 2015 illegal importation of (her) two dogs into Australia," the spokesperson said, which was first reported by Newsweek.
