MEDIA STATEMENT
The Inquiry into the process that led to the appointment of a Deputy Commissioner of Police has found that the process was sound, State Services Minister Chris Hipkins says.
The Government asked independent reviewer Mary Scholtens QC to report on the adequacy of the process that led to the appointment of Wally Haumaha.
Mary Scholtens’ report was released today.
The Inquiry’s purpose was to examine, identify, and report on the adequacy of the process that led to the appointment.
It found the process was sound and no available relevant information was omitted.
However it did make some recommendations on how the appointment process could be improved in the future.
“I want to thank Mary Scholtens for her work and thank everyone who participated in the inquiry,” Chris Hipkins said.
