STATEMENT FROM ADAM BANDT:
On Wednesday, I made statements about Senator Jim Molan on Sky TV in relation to his service in Iraq.
I wish to publicly say that I was wrong to make such accusations and inferences against Senator Molan.
I sincerely apologise and express my regret to Senator Molan and to those who have served in Australia’s operational theatres and to their families and friends who were offended by my comments.
I propose to make a donation to a veterans organisation as an expression of my sincerity over this issue.
