Earlier this year, Ms Higgins came forward with allegations she was raped by a fellow Liberal Party staffer in 2019.

She has since referred the matter to Australian Federal Police.

ACT Director of Public Prosecutions Shane Drumgold has now received a partial brief of evidence and a request to provide advice on any prosecution.

It is not known when a final decision will be made.

ACT Police declined to comment on the investigation.
