Apology to Andrew Laming

On 28 March 2021 I published content containing false and damaging comments that Andrew Laming MP was a sociopath, a bully and that he had unlawfully taken a picture up a young woman’s skirt.

A complaint to the Queensland Police on 29 March 2021 cleared Andrew Laming MP the following day of all wrongdoing, because there was no evidence to suggest any offence had been committed in respect to the complaint.

I apologise for, and regret, making the damaging comments about Andrew Laming MP. I unconditionally withdraw these comments, which were wrong, inaccurate and unsubstantiated.
