Mrs PEULICH (South Eastern Metropolitan) — I wish to make a personal explanation with regard to allegations made against me and published in the daily media and republished via social media. I completely and categorically reject all allegations made against me as false and, I contend, malicious. As a member of Parliament from a migrant background, I find racism abhorrent, and my entire life has been committed to working against discrimination against persons on the grounds of their race, religion and ethnicity. The allegations are now subject to legal processes that I have instigated.
Thank you, President, for allowing me to make a statement with regard to allegations which are the antithesis of all that I stand for.
