& # 39; The [Fairfax] the article contains a catalog of lies, fabrications and misrepresentations, "said Mr. Roberts-Smith, in response to a condemnatory story published by The Sydney Morning Herald.

"It is the culmination of many months of malicious and highly damaging accusations, all of which will be vigorously defended."

The allegations included the suggestion that a domestic violence complaint had been filed against the war veteran after a function in the Canberra Parliament in 2016.

In addition, he was accused of being in an extramarital relationship with the woman who allegedly made the complaint.

He was also accused of misconduct on the battlefield.

Daily Mail Australia in no way suggests that any of the allegations made against Ben Roberts-Smith is true.

"I want to say today that I unequivocally deny any physical abuse of any woman at any time, and that at no time have I been interviewed by the police about any alleged complaint of any woman," he said.

The accusations against Roberts-Smith carry special weight when the Inspector General of the Australian Defense Force (IGADF) approaches the end of his two-year investigation into alleged war crimes committed by the Australian Special Forces.

"I am deeply concerned about the alleged evidence presented under oath before the IGADF investigation has been consulted in the press and that Fairfax has accessed it," said Roberts-Smith.

"It is not only illegal, it is unfair to people who have not presented evidence and has the potential to undermine the impartiality of the investigation."

"If and when I am given the opportunity to defend each specific claim, I fully trust that direct witnesses will categorically demonstrate the falsity of all of them."

Roberts-Smith says he has not yet been interviewed by IGADF.

In an interview with The Weekend Australian, the Perth native spoke of the "devastating" impact that the growing reports and rumors of misconduct have had on him, and expressed his bewilderment at the apparent murder of his character.

& # 39; What is the next lie that will be published in the newspaper? & # 39; he said.

"I'm not a politician, I'm not famous, I went and fought for my country, and I'm being attacked because I fought for my country and got a medal.

I just do not understand how I'm sitting here in this position today. I really do not.
