Clark In Civil Suit For Rape

Victoria, AU -- A Woman who claims she was raped more than three decades ago by former ATSIC Chairman Geoff Clark yesterday won the right to sue him over a psychiatric disorder.

Carol Stingel, 51, has alleged she was gang-raped twice by a group led by Mr. Clark in April 1971 when she was 16 year old. The former head of the now defunct Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission has denied the allegations. Ms Stingel has vowed to sue him for damages over a delayed onset of post-traumatic stress disorder she says was brought on by the alleged assault.
