Nationals close probe of sexual harassment Barnaby Joyce without finding

Former deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce leaves a press conference at Parliament House in Canberra, Monday, August 20, 2018.

An investigation into allegations of sexual harassment directed at Barnaby Joyce has not been able to make a finding due to "insufficient evidence".

The Australian farmer Catherine Marriott made the complaint in February, which led to Joyce to resign as deputy prime minister and leader of the Nationals.

But Ms. Marriott says she is "extremely disappointed" that the Nationals' internal investigation has not made a finding, despite calling it "frank, credible, open and genuinely upset" by the incident.

More to come.
