Auditor-General's Report : More Reaction

It has always been the Green Party's position that it is committed to pay the spending identified as being outside the rules. "This is and always has been our position," Musterer Metiria Turei says. The amount will be divided between the six MPs and the Party. "We have been presented with a bill for $87,192 and that's what we're gearing up to pay. But obviously we don't have that kind of money to hand so we will be going out to our members and supporters to help us raise these funds," Mrs Turei says. See... Greens committed to paying [1]

    Children's Issues: NZ's shameful record of child abuse

    Today marks the release of the first United Nations international study on violence against children. The Study is a joint initiative, by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) and the World Health Organization (WHO)... David Kenkel, the advocacy manager for UNICEF New Zealand, says: “The violence in this report mirrors New Zealand, far too many of our own children experience it. We do not do well by our children; our recent record of child deaths by abuse is shameful.” See... Study Release: NZ shamed by our child abuse record [1]
