Johnny Depp’s wife Amber Heard has yet to end her court dog case drama in Australia.
As told by NBC News , the “Magic Mike XXL” star may reportedly be going back to Australia to defend herself against the accusations despite her previous words that she won’t set foot in the country again after what she and her dogs have gone through.
In a statement, the “Magic Mike XXL” actress said she will fight back the case to prove the she’s not guilty of illegally bringing her dogs into Australia.
“Whilst I am unable to comment on the specific matters before the Court I would like to say that I respect the importance of Australia’s laws,” she told the source above in a statement.
“My decision to defend these charges, as will become apparent in the appropriate forum of the Court, is not intended in any way to diminish the importance of Australia’s laws,” her statement continued as quoted by People .
Amber Heard’s court dog case rooted from an incident in May where the actress and Johnny Depp’s dogs where apparently discovered to be in Australia without purportedly having the proper documentation and not passing through quarantine.
As reported by CNN back then, the country had one of the strictest rules when it came to letting pets enter their territory. Local officials even threatened to euthanize the dogs if they were not flown off the country. The dogs, Boo and Pistol, were successfully flown to the US before the deadline.
Three months ago, Johnny Depp appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” as reported by E! Online and insisted that they did not sneak in their dogs to the country.
“We were under the impression that we had all the paperwork done for the dogs, we were there with the dogs in front of everybody,” the actor said.
Amber Heard’s court dog was adjourned until Dec. 15. No word yet if the actress will personally appear in court or let her lawyers handle it for now. If found guilty, she may face up to 10 years in prison aside from a fee.
