Statement from Premier on Charges Filed Againts Former Speaker Bush

Government 09 Mar, 2023 Follow News

Hon. Premier Wayne Panton

The charges laid today against long serving independent MP, McKeeva Bush, are serious and concerning. I believe in our system of justice along with the principle of innocent until proven guilty, and I have faith in our courts to resolve this matter.

Whatever the outcome of this particular case, there are larger social issues that this matter raises, such as the treatment of women in the workplace and in our society. Almost every woman has had inappropriate experiences. We, as a society, must do better.

The draft Sexual Harassment Legislation out for public consultation offers the country an opportunity to have the uncomfortable but necessary conversations about how we do a better job of treating each other with the respect that we all deserve, regardless of gender.
