INDEPENDENT NEWS

Statement from Deputy Commissioner Wally Haumaha

Published: Mon 12 Nov 2018 03:51 PM
I am very pleased that we now have Ms Scholtens QC’s independent report. Her findings on the process for my appointment answer the matters that have been raised. The IPCA’s report is still to come: but she has already found that the appointment process was correctly carried out.
I want to thank all those who have assisted the Inquiry. It has not been easy for anyone, as I know from my own weeks and months waiting for the outcome.
I am especially grateful to my whanau and the many iwi leaders who have supported me and my family. I also want to thank the great number of people, many unknown to me, who have also given us their support.
I have also gained personal insights from this process.
I have worked for 30 years to improve Police’s service to our community, especially in relation to the special needs of our Maori, Pacifika and ethnic citizens. I look forward to the opportunity of continuing this work.
With the investigation now completed I will not be making any further comment on the report.
