Warranted searches conducted for Mycoplasma bovis


Warranted searches conducted during Mycoplasma bovis investigation

28 March 2018

Warranted officers from the Ministry for Primary Industries’ Compliance Investigations team ran simultaneous searches at three locations yesterday as part of an investigation associated with the Mycoplasma bovis response.

The searches were conducted in both the North and South islands.

Manager Compliance Investigations, Gary Orr, says the searches related to potential breaches of legislation related to the M Bovis response.

“We recognise there is strong interest in the rural sector concerning how Mycoplasma bovis may have entered New Zealand,” says Mr Orr.

“We will ensure the outcome of these investigations is communicated to farmers as soon as we are able to provide that information,” Mr Orr says.

The Ministry is unable to provide substantive comment while investigations continue.
