Sentencing Helps ASB Bank Staff To Move On
Statement made by Hugh Burrett, Managing Director ASB BANK
Today’s sentencing was significant for ASB BANK staff as it brings to justice the person who took our friend and colleague, John Vaughan, in a senseless murder.
It helps us more fully put this horrific episode behind us, and continue to move on.
An important part of the healing for the staff of Mangere Bridge branch was to be in Court today, to see justice being done. It is testament to their incredible unity and bravery that they were able to go to Court today to face this person again.
Our priorities now are to continue to provide support to our staff, and to the community at Mangere Bridge, who have been so wonderful in their support of us.
