Fevola in clear over Bingle photo




AN AFL investigation has found there is insufficient evidence that Brisbane Lions forward Brendan Fevola distributed a controversial nude photograph of model Lara Bingle taken in 2006.

While Fevola admitted taking the photograph of Bingle in a shower, the investigation concluded that the circumstances surrounding that were in dispute.

The AFL probe was launched after claims that Fevola had sent the photo to other league players.

The furore that followed involved Australian cricket vice-captain Michael Clarke, who temporarily abandoned Australia's tour of New Zealand and returned to Sydney to support his then fiancée. The couple have since separated.

AFL general manager of football operations Adrian Anderson said on Friday in a statement, "Given the evidence currently available to us and the time elapsed since the alleged behaviour, the AFL has not established that a breach of our rules has occurred."

Fevola was interviewed twice as part of the investigation, conducted by the AFL's manager of integrity services Brett Clothier and cultural strategy and education manager Sue Clark, but Bingle, through her lawyers, declined to speak directly with the league.

She did provide a statutory declaration.

"We will continue to monitor whether there are legal proceedings arising from this matter and the AFL remains willing to speak with Ms Bingle," Anderson said.

"The AFL does not condone any behaviour which shows a lack of respect towards women. All AFL players and officials should be aware that taking and distributing private images without consent is unacceptable and can result in sanctions under the AFL player rules."
