Police statement – Labour summer camp

Police are now investigating the allegations of sexual assault at the Labour summer camp:

Investigation commences into allegations about Young Labour summer camp

A police investigation has commenced into allegations regarding a Young Labour summer camp at Waihi in February.

The first step will be to assess information available to police to determine what is required from an investigation perspective.

The investigation will be overseen by Detective Superintendent Chris Page.

We continue to encourage anyone with information they wish to discuss with police, or matters they wish to report, to contact us.

Our priority is to ensure that anyone who wishes to speak with us can feel comfortable in doing so, and to ensure that appropriate support services are available.

We will not be publicly confirming any matters regarding those who may approach police, or complaints that may be received, to ensure that individuals can feel confident in speaking to us. We will also not discuss specific investigative steps which may be undertaken, or put a timeframe on the investigation.

    So … I missed the 1ewes at 6 story on this disaster. Is it worth watching for it on the plus one channel? Anybody know?

    What about the idiots who didn’t realise that if alcohol was available, the underage drinkers would be able to drink it ? They didn’t deliberately give it to them, but they certainly don’t seem to have done anything about stopping them having (buying ?) it at what looks like a bar full of obviously drunk teenagers.

    Do you reckon that if this was in court with Perry Mason or one of those courtroom TV shows someone would say that most of that stuff would have been called ‘supposition.’
