Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison
“To the children we failed, sorry.
To the parents whose trust was betrayed and who have struggled to pick up the pieces, sorry.
To the whistleblowers, who we did not listen to, sorry.
To the spouses, partners, wives, husbands, children, who have dealt with the consequences of the abuse, cover-ups and obstruction, sorry.
To generations past and present, sorry,
We are sorry. Sorry you are not protected,. Sorry you are not listened to.
We are sorry for refusing to trust the words of children, for not believing you.
As we say sorry, we also say we believe you.”
