Defence counsel John Munro said it was the first example of the complainant exaggerating her story to cast Fraser in an unflattering light. A second woman, who went home with Fraser five weeks later after bumping into him in town, made similar allegations. The complainant’s sister, who picked her up that night, initially told police she had not noticed any injuries to the woman. Mr Munro called the witness a “true-blue liar” who had clearly been trying to bolster her sister’s story. While painting the complainants also as dishonest, he stressed there was no need for the defence to explain why.
