Amber Heard to Face Charges in Australia

Amber Heard to Face Charges in Australia

Things are not looking well for Amber Heard, the wife of famous actor Johnny Depp. Amber was summoned to appear in court and could be facing some serious charges. If the star will be found guilty she may face $ 100,000 in fines, but Amber may also face 10 years in prison.

Of course, the case is linked to the allegations that both Amber and Johnny have faced in Australia. So, Australian authorities accused the two actors of trying to smuggle their two dogs to the country. As a consequence, Amber was now charged with two counts of illegal importation, despite the quarantine act of the country, as well as one count of producing a false document.

Well, the reason why Amber traveled to Australia with the two dogs is actually linked to the fact that she wanted to see her husband and spend some time together. Johnny Depp has been in Australia for quite a few months now, being busy on the set of his upcoming movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Amber took the couple's pet dogs in their private jet and flew to meet her husband.

However, this may have not been in accordance with the law. It is yet unknown if Amber, Johnny or their staff knew that they were violating the law or not. The couple may have thought that since they were embarking their pets on their private jet, there would be no issue. However, authorities in Australia seem to believe the opposite. Quite a huge controversy has been created surrounding this subject. Some even claimed that Australian authorities were trying to make an example out of the two.

"He has decided to bring to our nation two dogs without actually getting proper certification and the proper permits required. Basically, it looks like he snuck them in," Australian Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said when the events occurred. "It's time that Pistol and Boo buggered off back to the United States," the same statement added.

The famous pair was urged to take their dogs back to the US, authorities even threatening to euthanize the pets. Amber and Johnny flew their dogs back home soon after.
