Apology to David Wong-Tung and Oravida
“On the 19th of June 2015, I issued a press release under the title “Govt. stuck in the mud over swamp kauri allegations.”
“I acknowledge that the press release was capable of conveying meanings that were not intended. Specifically, I did not mean to suggest that David Wong-Tung and Oravida were involved in the illegal export of swamp kauri or that they influenced the government or any member of it to turn a blind eye to any such exports.”
“I apologise to Mr Wong-Tung and Oravida for these comments and accept that I had no basis for making them.”
Eugenie Sage MP
