Statement from Senator Hanson-Young regarding NSW police officer guilty plea

Media Release
Sarah Hanson-Young 6 Nov 2018

"In July, in the midst of the public debate regarding comments made by Senator Leyonhjelm about me, a NSW police officer called my office and made a vile threat towards my daughter," Senator Hanson-Young said.

 

“Vile threats such as these are unacceptable on every level. I am thankful that the police found the person responsible and he has been charged and pleaded guilty in court.

 

“This matter is deeply distressing for me, my family, and my staff. Everybody has the right to feel safe in their homes, their workplaces and their community.

 

“Since this was made public I have received widespread support from decent people in our community. I am sincerely grateful to those who have kindly reached out.”
