SFO not pursuing complaint against Meat Workers Union

Media Statement
12 April 2012


SFO not pursuing complaint against Meat Workers Union


The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) announced today that it would not be investigating a complaint made regarding the financial affairs of the New Zealand Meat Workers & Related Trades Union Inc.

SFO Chief Executive, Adam Feeley, said that an immediate evaluation of the information provided to SFO investigators failed to disclose any evidence of fraud

“We encourage any member of the public to contact us where they have any reasonable grounds to believe that a serious financial crime may be taking place. However, it is equally important that the resources of law enforcement agencies are not unnecessarily drawn into matters where other, more appropriate, courses of action are available.”

Mr Feeley added that any issues regarding regulatory compliance were matters for the Registrar of Incorporated Societies to consider.

The SFO has communicated this result to the complainant and to the Union.
