The developers who knocked down Carlton's Corkman Irish Pub have apologised and have said they will rebuild it.
The Age report that late on Thursday afternoon, Raman Shaqiri and Stefce Kutlesovski sent a letter to Planning Minister Richard Wynne.
"We want to make absolutely clear that we will rebuild the building at our expense," the pair said in their letter, which was given to The Age.
Wynne said the letter from the developers changed nothing, and that he would continue his action in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal seeking orders to have the pub rebuilt within a year.
“They are saying they did not know what caused the fire. They had no idea about that the two developers. I wonder if they can work out how that asbestos got across town as well…” Luke Darcysaid on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.
