Pullar not charged

June 5th, 2012 at 11:50 am by David Farrar

Adam Bennett at NZ Herald reports:

Police will not press charges against , the former National Party insider at the centre of a massive privacy breach at , the Herald understands.

If this is correct, then I think it will raise issues around whether the complaint to the Police was in good faith, or an attempt to punish a persistent critic of ACC. I personally won’t jump to conclusions until at a minimum the Police give details behind their decision, and preferably the full file is released publicly.

    Given this Government’s form W.R.T. punishing critics, I think you can take a pretty safe punt at guessing what it was…

    ACC will comment publicly this afternoon. I wonder how many CV’s are suddenly being dusted off…

    I agree Viking; providing misleading information to your Minister is the biggest no-no in the public sector; heads should roll.

    Yes, heads should roll Keeping Stock but is there any guarantee this Minister is in a position to do that. This investigation might have merely skimmed the surface. Does responsibility no longer start at the top?

    Responsibility does indeed start at the top Nostalgia, and if the Minister discovers that her department has misled her, whether purposely or inadvertently), she is likely to have very little tolerance.
