The South Australian Opposition leader, Martin Hamilton-Smith, has responded to legal demands from Premier Mike Rann by making a public apology for the Scientology affair.

Mr Rann's lawyers have written to Mr Hamilton-Smith demanding a full public apology for falsely claiming the Labor Party had solicited donations from an organisation linked to the Church of Scientology.

Mr Hamilton-Smith had used forged documents to base the claims, which he now acknowledges were fakes.
