“The man who walked into the room was probably a roommate of the owner of the room you were in,” said Mr. Campbell. The trial heard that the occupant of the bedroom they were in was absent.


The woman, who denied part of the incident in the early hours of December 9, 2018, was amicable, saying the version put forward by Mr. Campbell was wrong and she had never seen another man come to the door.

Mr de Belin, 29, and Mr Sinclair, 23, are both on trial and have pleaded not guilty to having committed five cases of aggravated sexual assault allegedly after a party with the then 19-year-old woman in a nightclub in Wollongong were committed.

Mr. Campbell informed the woman that later on December 9, she told two work colleagues about the presence of the other man, which she denied.

The woman also denied raising concerns that Mr de Belin had a girlfriend following the incident after asking questions from Mr Sinclair’s attorney Craig Smith SC.

“You looked at Mr. Sinclair for a few seconds and said, but Jack, Jack, he has a girlfriend,” asked Mr. Smith, to whom the woman said “No”.

“Did Mr. de Belin say, ‘Baby it’s okay, me and my girlfriend are on the rocks, it’s not a drama’?” Mr. Smith asked.

“He never said that,” replied the woman.

The woman previously told the court that she believed she was going to another bar around 1 a.m. when she jumped into a tuk-tuk with Mr de Belin and Mr Sinclair before the driver was directed to another location and that Trio went to another apartment because the men had to charge their phones and they needed the toilet.

She said that while in her own bathroom, Mr. de Belin came in naked and began to shower, which prompted her to quickly return to the bedroom before stepping behind her, “I felt the wet body of him on my back.”

But Mr. Campbell told her that after leaving the bathroom she went over to Mr. Sinclair and started kissing him, and then Mr. de Belin came to the couple and joined, which the woman denied.
