Australian PM issues apology to child sex victims

Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison (C) delivers a national apology to child sex abuse victims in the House of Representatives in Parliament House in Canberra on October 22, 2018.

Canberra: Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison Monday issued an emotive apology to children who suffered sexual abuse, saying the state had failed to protect them from “evil dark” crimes committed over decades.

“This was done by Australians to Australians, enemies in our midst, enemies in our midst,” Morrison told a parliamentary chamber in a televised speech, his voice trembling with emotion.

“As a nation, we failed them, we forsook them, and that will always be our shame.”
