Former immigration minister Scott Morrison repeatedly refused to apologise during a fiery interview on ABC's Insiders on Sunday, after incendiary claims against asylum seeker support staff were found to be baseless.
On Friday, news broke of a secret compensation deal between the Immigration department and Save the Children staff who were removed from Nauru because of allegations they were teaching asylum seekers to self-harm.
ABC Insiders host Barrie Cassidy asked Morrison if he'd now apologise to Save the Children, but the former immigration minister stood firm and challenged him to "check the transcript".
Morrison made the accusations against Save the Children staff back in October 2014 after being given a report about what was happening on Nauru.
