CYFS Rejects Dominion-Post Article

To be attributed to Jo Mika-Thomas, General Manager – People and Capability, Child, Youth and Family:

To refute the article published in the Dominion Post on Monday, 8 May 2006 entitled “Porn inquiry nets 10 CYF staff”:

During the Police Operation Insight, the Department became aware of an email circulating amongst some staff that was NOT pornographic in nature but was offensive and unacceptable.

The email had no sexual content whatsoever.

The Department identified 12 staff who were immediately involved and investigated each of them. As a result 10 of the 12 were disciplined appropriate to their involvement as follows:

2 final written warnings 5 written warnings 1 verbal warning 2 informal warnings

It is important to note that whilst this came about as a result of Police Operation Insight - those staff we investigated and disciplined for breach of the code of conduct, were not involved in accessing or distributing pornographic material.

HiveMind: Fair Enough? How Should New Zealanders Be Taxed? - Have Your Say

Scoop and PEP invite you to share your issues, ideas and perspectives on the NZ tax system with other New Zealanders using Scoop’s HiveMind tool. This Tax HiveMind is intended to complement and feed into the review being run by the Government-appointed Tax Working Group (TWG), which is looking at the fairness, balance and structure of the tax system with a 10-year time horizon.

We at Scoop and PEP believe that an issue as important as the fairness of the tax regime should be open for discussion, debate and dialogue. Unfortunately, a written submission process just doesn’t encourage the kind of public exchange we think is necessary in a well-functioning democracy. More>>
