ASB Relieved At Manukau Serial Killings Charges

ASB Bank Relieved At Manukau Serial Killings Charges

Statement made by Hugh Burrett, Managing Director ASB BANK

We are relieved that Police have charged three men in relation to the Manukau Serial Killings.

We would like to congratulate Police on their swift action and thank them for the support they have given staff at ASB BANK and John Vaughan’s family during this terrible time.

The murder of our colleague, John, was a senseless act which we are still struggling to come to terms with. The charging of these men relieves some of the pressure we all felt.

We will continue to provide full support to John’s family, the staff from the Mangere Bridge branch, and colleagues throughout the country who have been feeling this loss.

ASB BANK would also like to thank the incredible support of our customers and the wider public whose tributes have touched every staff member in communities around the country.
