PRESS RELEASE ISSUED BY MR KEITH SCHEMBRI, CHIEF OF STAFF AT THE OFFICE OF THE PRIME MINISTER

I welcome the news that Allied Newspapers and Adrian Hillman have reached a positive agreement and all litigation is being withdrawn. Given that part of the claims attributed wrongdoing by Mr Hillman and companies belonging to my group, this result proves that there was no such wrongdoing as had been alleged.

The dishonest and highly politicised campaign against me personally has been proved to be baseless.

Now that this matter has been resolved, for the sake of transparency, I urge Allied Newspapers to publish its independent inquiry.
