SYDNEY– Film star Johnny Depp’s wife, actress Amber Heard, has actually been accuseded of unlawfully bringing the couple’s Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo into Australia in May, according to the Department of Public Prosecution.
Heard was charged on Thursday with 2 counts of illegally importing the pets and one count of producing a false file. She flew the pets into the country on a private jet without a two-week quarantine and authorization as needed.
If founded guilty, she deals with a maximum penalty of One Decade in jail and a fine of $102,000.
The couple drew global interest in Might when the Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce bought the pets returned to the United States or face death.
Joyce implicated Depp of smuggling the pets on his private jet when he returned to Australia to resume shooting “Pirates of the Caribbean” film.
“If we begin letting film stars – even though they’ve been the sexiest man alive two times– to come into our nation (with animals), then why do not we just break the laws for everybody?” Joyce stated at the time. “It’s time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States.”
Australia has rigorous quarantine regulations to prevent conditions such as rabies from spreading on the arid continent.
