Rogers repeatedly wrongly told the integrity investigation that Mr Quaedvlieg had not advised her on how to apply for the job at the ABF, as established facts.
& # 39; Generally this is a tension between the law and the emotional entanglement of having a relationship with someone (depending on the research), & # 39; said Rogers & # 39; attorney, Bryan Wrench, to the court.
& # 39; In a sense, it is a loyalty conflict. & # 39;
According to agreed facts, reports between Rogers and the then-suspended ABF boss confirm that he was aware of the hearing and that she had asked what questions she would be asked.
In a message, Rogers said that she really can't handle stress or anxiety very well and that I always burst into tears … I feel so damned intimidated by this whole thing and so overwhelmed & # 39 ;.
Mr. Wrench said his client had done her best to disclose nothing about the investigation but arrangements to receive the subpoena were made while she was alongside Mr. Quaed fly.
He added that his client, who was diagnosed with anxiety in 2014, said she was stressed about her long-term partner and asked for advice on what she would see in the study.
Mr. Quaedvlieg told Rogers that he just had to tell the truth.
& # 39; If she had accepted the advice, it might cost you one time less, & # 39; Mr. Wrench said.
& # 39; She was a mouse in a political jungle. & # 39;

The prosecutor, Jennifer Single, however, stated that the case was not trivial and that every punishment should include a conviction.
& # 39; (Disclosing the summons) is not a matter of just maybe & # 39; yes & # 39; nodding with her partner in response to a question or by remaining silent, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; This is a blatant violation of the law and an intentional infringement. & # 39;
Single said that Rogers had shown little regret and remorse.
She referred to a conviction report on Rogers stating that she had expressed her regret over how her family and work prospects were influenced by the lawsuit.
& # 39; That's all self-centered regret, & # 39; said Single.
Magistrate Jennifer Atkinson is expected to give her decision on July 29.
