The Government is hereby issuing an apology to Dusty, and acknowledges that the wrong decision was made. During the last election, due process was not followed during an internal investigation. This unfortunate decision led to Dusty being struck from the ballot and ultimately not being re-elected to Congress. He was wrongfully removed from the elections, and he had in no way engaged in electoral fraud.
Along with the public apology and the recognition of the Government's mistakes, the Government has decided to issue an ex gratia payment, of an undisclosed amount, to compensate Dusty for such.
The Government is committed to being transparent and honest, and part of that includes recognizing and reconciling with past mistakes.
