Amber Heard has been summoned to court over the debacle involving Johnny Depp’s dogs.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp were in trouble for ignoring Australia’s strict animal quarantine laws. They were in Australia because Depp is filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean installment.
At the time, Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said, “It’s time Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States.”
Pistol and Boo did indeed bugger off a few days later.
However, a later Senate hearing was told that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard could be sentenced up to 10 years in jail, or they could be forced to pay a fine of up to $265,000 if they were found guilty of illegally importing the dogs.
Now, Amber Heard is required to show up and explain her and Johnny Depp’s actions.
A statement read, “Ms. Amber Heard was served with a summons issued by the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions on July 14.”
It continued, “The CDPP’s action follows an incident where a bio-security officer attended a Gold Coast property in April and found two dogs alleged to be illegally imported. All animals entering Australia must have an import permit, and have undergone relevant testing and health checks signed off by a government veterinarian from the exporting country to ensure pests and diseases from overseas are not brought here.”
Amber Heard was not thrilled at all to be entangled in the fiasco.
