TVNZ: Statement Regarding Media Requests
Veitch Affair: Statement Regarding Media
TVNZ has received numerous requests from media for answers to questions concerning Tony Veitch.
Some of these questions are completely appropriate and TVNZ has every intention of responding to legitimate enquiries as soon as this is possible.
Chief Executive Rick Ellis says TVNZ wants to be as open as it can be with New Zealanders but is also committed to conducting its employee relations in a fair and responsible way.
"As I have explained, there are complex employment and privacy aspects to this situation that restrict what can be said publicly. I would ask for the public's patience while we go through our processes in a proper way."
