Government officials have confirmed Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp could face up to 10 years in prison or a maximum fine of $340,000 for illegally bringing his two dogs into Australia.
His pilot could face up to two years in prison for his role in the undeclared importing of Pistol and Boo.
These were some of the details revealed as a Senate committee hearing in Canberra turned its attention to the high-profile quarantine case.
“It is very serious,” politicians and public servants agreed.
“A complete balls up,” muttered another committee member.
As well as being grilled by the senators for forty minutes, department officials also had the chance to enjoy committee chairman Bill Heffernan’s best Yorkie impersonation.
An ongoing investigation by the department understands that Depp, his fellow passengers and the flight crew all failed to declare the presence of the dogs.
MAYBE HE SHOULD GO TO JAIL. GETS HIM AWAY FROM AMBER AND BOOZE.
