EMBATTLED former Labor MP Barry Urban will quit Parliament tomorrow, ahead of a report into the fake medal scandal which has engulfed his political career since late last year.
It wasrevealed in November that Mr Urban had been wearing a police service medal he wasn’t entitled to — and then lied about how he obtained it.
It is understood Mr Urban has now decided to “put the nightmare behind” him.
“I am paying a hefty price for my mistakes,” he will tell Parliament in a speech tomorrow.
“I’ve had to deal with intense media scrutiny and online harassment.
“Social media posts have been used to intimidate, humiliate and hurt me.”
