The Covid-19 privacy breach report

The report by Michael Heron QC is here. It is no surprise as we already know who was responsible, but the findings are:

  • Michelle Boag and Hamish Walker were responsible for the unauthorised disclosure, their motivations were political and their actions unjustified
  • The Ministry of Health should have had better protection over personal information
  • Walker admits his judgment was impaired due to his distress at being labelled a racist
  • The actions of Walker and Boag fell below the standards NZers expect but Heron appreciates their candor and regret
