NZ is ‘perceived’ to be ‘the least corrupt country in the world’ according to Transparency Int Corruption Perception index – it’s not says an anti-corruption whistleblower

NZ is ‘perceived’ to be ‘the least corrupt country in the world’ according to the 2016 Transparency International ‘Corruption Perception Index’.
NZ, in the opinion of experienced anti-corruption whistle-blower Penny Bright, is a ‘corrupt, polluted tax haven – a banana republic – without the bananas’.

“Throw Transparency International’s ‘Corruption Perception Index’ into the rubbish bin of history!”

WHY: It’s time to move from corruption measurement based on ‘perception’ to REALITY.

NZ is ‘perceived’ to be ‘the
least corrupt country in the
world’ according to the 2016 Transparency International
‘Corruption Perception Index’.

NZ, in the opinion of experienced anti-corruption whistle-blower Penny Bright, is a ‘corrupt, polluted tax haven – a banana republic – without the bananas’.

That’s what she told the Chair of the Board of TI, Jose Ugaz, in front of 200 attendees at this meeting, and provided evidence, in the form of her ACTION PLAN for Transparency and Accountability.

(Penny Bright has just returned from The Hague, and ‘blew the whistle’ making the same points at the World Justice Project 2017 International Rule Of Law Forum – attended by 400 ‘experts’ from 75 countries).

The gentrification of Tamaki under the guise of ‘Regeneration’ scam – the sale of your state assets to private property developers at UNDISCLOSED prices

NZ WHISTLE-BLOWER UPDATE!

Sunday 15 October 2017

“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

 

DEVELOPMENTS:

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’).
https://www.transparency.org/…/corruption_perceptions_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.)

This 5 minute video where I explain the, IMO, ‘Tamaki Scam’ has now had over 169,000 views on facebook.
