Statement from AACTA regarding Geoffrey Rush stepping aside as President
Saturday 2 December 2017
Statement from AACTA in regards to Geoffrey Rush stepping aside as President:
AACTA acknowledges the decision today of Geoffrey Rush to voluntarily step aside as President of AACTA and accepts and respects his decision to do so.
We have been deeply concerned about the situation and support a course of action that both respects Geoffrey’s rights to the presumption of innocence and due process, but also acknowledges good corporate governance in these circumstances.
We will not be making any further comment at this time.
