A former WA corporate affairs chief has provided sworn evidence for the criminal prosecution of Julia Gillard over her allegedly misleading and deceptive evidence to the Trade Union Royal Commission.
The prosecution relates to the use of an apparently forged letter during Ms Gillard's evidence to the Royal Commission.
The letter, addressed to Ms Gillard, purports to have been written and signed by Ray Neal, then the Assistant Director of WA's Office of State Corporate Affairs.
On Friday Mr Neal said, "I didn't write that letter."
"I didn't sign that letter."
"I didn't authorise anyone to write or sign the letter."
"The letter contains an unlawful offer. My office could not lawfully have made that offer. My office always acted within the law."
This letter is a forgery.
More to come.
