(CNN)- A former newspaper reporter said Friday that allegations in an editorial claiming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau groped her at a musical festival 18 years ago are true, but she considers the matter closed.

In a statement obtained by CNN partner CBC News, Rose Knight said Trudeau, who was not in politics at the time, apologized the next day.

The Prime Minister on Thursday said that he did apologize at the time. "I do not feel that I acted inappropriately in any way. But I respect the fact that someone else might have experienced that differently and this is part of the reflections that we have to go through."
