Friday, August 8, 2014

The Australian parents of baby Gammy have told their story to 60 Minutes.

60 Minutes Executive Producer Tom Malone says: "The Australian parents of baby Gammy and his twin sister, have asked us for the opportunity to tell their side of the story."

"We never comment on any commercial arrangements between 60 Minutes and our interview subjects but given the nature of this story, it's important our viewers know that no money has been or will be paid to the parents.

"60 Minutes has not in any way interfered with any inquiries by the Western Australian Department of Child Protection, or Western Australian Police."

Gammy's Australian parents have asked 60 Minutes to immediately release the following information on their behalf, which we have agreed to do:
