Statement from TVNZ Regarding Tony Veitch

9 July 2008

Statement from TVNZ

Television New Zealand has a review process underway regarding disclosures by sports presenter Tony Veitch.

TVNZ Chief Executive Rick Ellis said the review began on Monday but there were significant and complex matters around the issue that restricted what could be said publicly.

"We are giving the situation our most serious consideration, and Tony's personal statement today will be taken into account by the review process," he said.

"Violence is a major issue in New Zealand and the profile of our on air presenters is important to the public and to our organisation."

Mr Ellis said TVNZ had had a number of conversations with Mr Veitch and his legal representatives since Monday.

The review process is being run by the Head of Television, the Head of Human Resources and the Head of News and Current Affairs.
