Dept. of Veterans' Affairs to apologise to paratrooper over stall compo claim

published 1 week ago by ABC News and Current Affairs

Last month 7.30 aired a story about the extraordinary lengths the Department of Veterans' Affairs went to, to thwart a compensation claim: secretly changing its own policy in order to stop a claim by a former elite paratrooper who had badly injured his back. We've now learnt the head of the Veterans' Affairs department has requested a meeting with Mr Rollins in order to issue a personal apology. The ministers for Defence and Veterans Affairs have also ordered a departmental review into the matter.
