“IMO, the essence of the ‘Tamaki Scam’ has been to use similar-sounding names for different companies, in order to disguise the real private property developer-driven GENTRIFICATION’ agenda, as ‘Regeneration’ of poorer communities.” ….. Penny Bright
This is, IMO, actually quite a big deal – in terms of NZ’s perceived status as ‘the least corrupt country in the world’?
(Transparency International’s 2016 ‘Corruption Perception Index’).
100% Crown-owned ‘Crown Entity Company’ – Tamaki Regeneration Ltd, with $1.6 billion worth of former Housing NZ properties is not listed under Sch 4A of the Public Finance Act, or Sch 2 of the Crown Entities Act, or listed as a company monitored by Treasury’s Crown Company Monitoring Advisory Unit.
How ‘banana republic’ is THAT?
I have raised my concerns directly with:
- The Office of the Auditor-General.
- The office of the Attorney-General.
- The office of the Solicitor-General.
- Treasury (legal).
- The State Services Commission.
(My concerns are being addressed by all the above-mentioned.)
