Amber Heard facing perjury investigation in Australia: Report
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
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
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.
