The conduct of the ACT’s chief prosecutor, Shane Drumgold, has been called into question by Bruce Lehrmann’s lawyer at an inquiry examining how the case was handled. Steven Whybrow accused Drumgold of “aligning” himself with Brittany Higgins, which he described as a “pejorative stab” at Lehrmann. The original trial was abandoned due to juror misconduct, and there have been no findings against Lehrmann. The inquiry also heard further details of the tense relationship between police and prosecutors. Drumgold’s lawyer, Mark Tedeschi, said Drumgold was troubled by suggestions ACT police were “undercharging” in sexual assault matters. The inquiry continues on Monday.
