The Herald reports:
This is a very serious matter. It sounds like a rogue MSD staffer altered Mr Peters’ form seven years ago in order to pay Mr Peters’ more money – possibly hoping to embarass him some day. MSD surely has to investigate how the application form correctly filled in by Mr Peters was altered so it was incorrect.
This is a copy of the application form for Superannuation. So Mr Peters would have ticked Yes and written in his partner’s name, DOB and gender. If Peters gives a privacy waiver to MSD, they can release the form that will show his handwriting on it with his partner’s name written in. This will exonerate him totally if he gives a waiver.
