Ms Dillon alleged in the affidavit that she was raped three times in the 1980s by Bill Landeryou, a close friend of Mr Hawke.

The powerful media mogul at the core of Donald Trump's debunked views on vaccines and autism

  The powerful media mogul at the core of Donald Trump's debunked views on vaccines and autism President Donald Trump has expressed anti-vaccine views since 2007, when he told a reporter that he believes vaccines can cause autism in young children. It's not immediately clear, however, how Trump developed this position, which stems from a discredited study published in 1998 and retracted in 2010. The lack of clarity has driven speculation that Trump based his belief on the experience of his 13-year-old son, Barron, who has been the subject of false speculation that he is autistic.

But as she turned to her father for comfort, she said she was met with a 'shocking and hurtful' response as he pleaded with her to stay quiet.

He feared it could derail his political career when he was on the cusp of becoming Labor leader.

In a detailed affidavit, the former Prime Minister's daughter explained that she told her father of the alleged rape soon afterward at their Melbourne family home.

'You can't go to the police,' she claims her father said.

'You can't. I can't have any controversies right now. I am sorry but I am challenging for the leadership of the Labor Party.'

Ms Dillon admitted she was 'shocked and hurt that (my father) asked this of me'.

As a result of pressure from her father, once one of Australia's most beloved politicians, she never went to the police.

Now a mother-of-two, she explained she was still 'haunted' by the assaults as she was never able to get closure because of her father's demands.

'I thought to myself, I could not make any bigger sacrifice to the (my father's) political career if I had tried,' the affidavit said.

'He asked me to let the matter go for him and I did so for him.'

'I am still haunted by the sexual assaults. I feel that I may have had a chance to get over these rapes if I was able to report the incidents to police.'

What Ms Dillon claims happened when she told her father Bob Hawke she had been raped

According to an affidavit submitted by Rosslyn Dillon, she told her father about the rapes in the 1980s.

Dillon: 'Bill (Landeryou) has raped me three times.'

Hawke: 'What? he touched you?'

Dillon: 'No, he forced me to have sex with him three times. I want to go to police.'

Anthony Joshua makes sparring offer to Tyson Fury ahead of Deontay Wilder rematch

Hawke: 'You can't. I can't have any controversies right now. I am sorry but I am challenging for the leadership of the Labor Party. You can't go to police.'

At the time, Mr Hawke was close friends with Landeryou, an MP in the Victorian Upper House.

He was one of Mr Hawke's chief supporters in his bid to become prime minister, and had his own state funeral held in March.

Ms Dillon went on to say that soon after the rapes, she fell pregnant and initially planned an abortion, having feared the child was Landeryou's.

But she soon discovered the late MP was unable to have children, so kept the baby - her now grown son David - on the assumption it was  her husband Matt's child.

Ms Dillon had been using heroin in the early 1980s when her father intervened to get her a job in Mr Landeryou's office.

It was then the sexual touching began, she claimed.

'During the time I was employed there I was often alone in Landeryou's office. At some time he started to touch me in a sexual way,' she stated.

'Landeryou sexually assaulted me three times – at the Hilton Hotel, at Parliament House and at his home in Sunshine, where he sneaked into the spare room where I was sleeping.'

Mr Hawke took over the Labor leadership from Bill Hayden in February of 1983 and the following month led the ALP to an election victory which began 13 years in power.

Ms Dillon submitted the allegations as part of her claim for a larger chunk of her late father's estate.

The 59-year old former drug addict was left $750,000 from the estate of Australia's longest-serving Labor prime minister, following his death in May aged 89.

She claimed that this does not provide adequate provision for her.

Her eldest sister Sue, 62, and brother Stephen, 60, are also being left the same amount, as is Mr Hawke's stepson Louis Pratt.

His widow and biographer Blanche d'Alpuget was left with everything else, including his luxury $9.2 million mansion and $3.6million apartment overlooking Sydney Harbour.

Mr Hawke caused controversy when he married his biographer Ms d'Alpuget, with whom he had conducted a long-running affair before leaving his wife in 1995.

His divorce from his wife of 38 years, Hazel Hawke, left him estranged from his children for years.
