page last updated Dec 8 2008
While the decision not to bring charges cleared his reputation, the allegation had been "distressing and devastating" for him and his family. "I am grateful for the support of my family, friends and colleagues from rugby and across the sports community throughout this ordeal."
Speaking from Tokoroa this morning, Boss' dad Allan said "we just feel vindicated". "We all knew it was rubbish from the very beginning. This news is a load off his shoulders."
Boss' agent, Kent Hale, said "the false
allegations made by a former acquaintance of Isaac's may leave the woman open
to prosecution for wasting police time" It had been Boss's high profile
as an international rugby player that had made him vulnerable to the
publicity the rape claims attracted.
Boss, 28, is still waiting to hear whether he will be charged with rape after a complaint was laid last month
Ex New Zealand rugby player who now plays for Ulster, has been accused of rape. 28 year old Isaac Boss was arrested in Belfast and questioned.
Boss has blasted the accusation which he strenuously denies and is adamant that he will fight tooth and nail to clear his good name In a statement, Boss said: A woman has made malicious and unfounded allegations against me. I have been devastated by these damaging and false claims and I will be strenuously defending my good name. I am moving swiftly and decisively to vindicate my reputation and I am completely confident that my name will be cleared.
